Since it is in the chemistry section I assume you mean a chemical compound. A chemical compound is a substance made of two or more elements bonded together. An element is any of the basic items from the periodic table. These include hydrogen, oxygen, helium, silver, gold and at least 112 others. Elements are made up of a single atom.

It is a substance consisting of two or more different elements chemically combined together . Compounds are form during chemical reactions, where heat and sometimes light energy are given out or taken in. A chemical reaction is a process in which the original substances are changed into 1 or more new substances.
A compound has properties that are different from the properties of its constituent element.can only be broken down into simpler substances by chemical methods such as decomposition. This normally involves heating, exposure to light or passing an electric current through them. The different element in a compound are chemically combined in a fixed proportion by mass.

The word compound is derived from the Middle English word compounen and also the Old French word 'componre'. The literal meaning of compound is 'to put together'. In other words the compound means comprising of two or more substances, ingredients, elements, or parts.

The word compound can be referred to so many things. For example you have something called as compound interest, which is an unpaid interest. Another compound reference would be an area that is surrounded by walls or fences on all side. This compound is generally used for any kind of activities. In terms of English you have a compound sentence. A compound sentence is made up of two independent clauses and no dependent clause. They are joined together with the help of a conjunction. You also have a compound food, which is a chocolate substitute.

Jnawrocki is right. A compound is  two or more elements bonded together. The difference between a compound and a mixture which also consists of two or more elements, is that mixtures are just elements arranged, but not bonded together, whereas in compounds bonds between the different elements do exist. Another way of thinking about is, in a mixture, the elements can be separated easily by mechanical processes like filtering, whereas to separate the elements in a compound, the bonds need to be broken which is a lot harder.
