Organic compounds contain the elements carbon and hydrogen, though the hydrogen atoms can be replaced by atoms of other elements. The structural formula given in the question represents a hydrocarbon because it is composed of only carbon and hydrogen. The chemical formula is #"C"_7"H"_15#. This molecule is derived from heptane #("C"_7"H"_16")#.
