A compound sentence has more than one independent clause, whereas a complex sentence has at least one independent and one dependent clause (it needs the main clause to exist as a comprehensible sentence).

Compound sentence: I was confused, and I did not like it.

Complex sentence: Although I was confused, I remained calm.
