    An element consists of only one type of atom. It is a pure substance and cannot be broken down to simpler substances. A compound consists of the same molecules chemically bonded together. It is also pure. A compound may exist as a pool of molecules(e.g. water)or a larger structure called a crystal lattice(e.g. salt crystals) Therefore, the statement is incorrect. Elements and compounds are both pure substances.
