    chemical compound is a chemical substance composed of many identical molecules (or molecular entities) composed of atoms from more than one element held together by chemical bonds. A molecule consisting of atoms of only one element is therefore not a compound.

    There are four types of compounds, depending on how the constituent atoms are held together:

    1. molecules held together by covalent bonds
    2. ionic compounds held together by ionic bonds
    3. intermetallic compounds held together by metallic bonds
    4. certain complexes held together by coordinate covalent bonds.
