Chemical compound is any substance composed of identical molecules consisting of atoms of two or more chemical elements.

All the matter in the universe is composed of the atoms of more than 100 different chemical elements, which are found both in pure form and combined in chemical compounds. A sample of any given pure element is composed only of the atoms characteristic of that element, and the atoms of each element are unique.

Every element is designated by a unique symbol consisting of one, two, or three letters arising from either the current element name or its original (often Latin) name. The fundamental principle of the science of chemistry is that the atoms of different elements can combine with one another to form chemical compounds.
