An element is the basic purist substance , it is composed of atoms of same kind ,not of elements hence an element can't be separated in elements , your question is wrong . A compound can be separated in component elements .

If you meant "separated into its isotopes" then yes. In fact, that's the most practical way of doing so. Isotopes of the same element have almost identical chemical properties.
