Some chemist use the term “molecule‘ to denote the smallest unit of a compound with the composition of the bulk material regardless of wether it is an ionic or covalent compound.For example when we speak of NaCl ,we use it in reference of molecule not compound.Similarly we use the term molecule to denote the discrete covalent bonded entity-H2O
