<Wiki:Chilli>
I don't think that there is much call for synthetically manufacturing Capsaicin
It is much easier to let the plants do it for you.

There are many processes used for determining the formula and structure of molecules.

Perhaps the basic one is to smash the chemical to bits and see what comes out.
Simply burning the substance (in a carefully controlled way) and measuring the products can give you a good handle on the relative abundances of the elements in the molecule.
Similarly reacting with other strong reagents (other than oxygen).

More subtle processes might include microwave absorption spectrum analysis <wiki:Spectroscopy>
or x-ray crystallography <wiki:crystalography>

Analytical Chemistry is a whole field of specialisation.
There are a large range of chemical reactions that have been found
the results of which each give an indication of the component elements.

By performing a number of these reactions on the trial substance
the chemist can start to say which elements are and which are not in the sample being tested.

I am not an analytical chemist, so I can only give this vague "broad brush" explanation.
