    Report bad ads?



    I was taught how to do this but i forgot and i've searched everywhere. Does anyone know how to write a displayed formula of a compound into a chemical formula?

    The branched group has to be bracketed to show it's on a branch but how do you know what to bracket in a compound like above?

    Jazak'Allah Khayran.

    structural (displayed) formula to chemical formula

    Help me to escape from this existence
    I yearn for an answer... can you help me?
    I'm drowning in a sea of abused visions and shattered dreams
    In somnolent illusion... I'm paralyzed
