    condensed structural formula is one which we write with the help of lines or we can write it when the repeated units are present in the structure.

    for eg., take adipic acid whose condensed formula is

    COOH_(CH2)6_COOH

    complete structural formula is

    COOH_CH2_CH2_CH2_CH2_CH2_CH2-COOH

    look at it...

    how much time it takes to write the complete structural formula.... thatis why.., scientists use condensed structural formula
