What is a molecular element?


A molecular element is where two or more of the same element bonds together to make a new element. This is also called a homonuclear molecule. Common examples of a molecular element are H2, O2 and N2, which are hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen.

There are several different molecular elements, which are very common in addition to the previously mentioned ones. Chlorine is one of the most common of the seven known diatomic molecular elements. Fluorine, iodine and bromine round out these type of elements. Molecular elements can also combine further to create molecular compounds. Molecular compounds like water (H2O) and carbon dioxide (CO2) are some of the most well-known compounds.
