List of Molecular Formulas

The molecular formula (MF) is a compact representation of an absolute requirement in order to perform structure elucidation. 

Molecular formulas are the formulas of molecules and they show all the atoms of each element in the molecule. A molecular formula need not have the smallest set of subscript numbers rather it can be either the same as or a whole number multiple of its empirical formula.

Molecular Balance

As a general statement 

Molecular formula = n $\times$ empirical formula

Where n is whole number from 1 to as large as necessary.
