Water is NOT a mixture but a pure compound of water molecules.

The compound 'water' is made when two Hydrogen (H) and one Oxygen (O) atoms are combined. The chemical formula for water is : H2O ( H-O-H = water).

Additional information: A mixture, in chemistry, is a collection of molecules or atoms of different types. The molecules of pure water are, as stated above, all H2O molecules.
