 The three structure levels have the following relations: //​compounds//​ can have (can be represented by) multiple //​structures//,​ and //​structures//​ with well-defined,​ known configurations can have multiple //​conformers//​. Inversely, //​conformers//​ have exactly one //​structure//,​ and //​structures//​ have exactly one //​compound//​. The three structure levels have the following relations: //​compounds//​ can have (can be represented by) multiple //​structures//,​ and //​structures//​ with well-defined,​ known configurations can have multiple //​conformers//​.
