Br2, O2, and N2 are examples of diatomic elements, which are basically elements that are mainly found in nature, in their most stable form, as two. Diatomic elements are a type of diatomic molecule, but I think Dr. Lavelle was referring to diatomic molecules as being literally any two elements bonded together. In context, he was saying that we have more accurate values for bond energy in diatomic molecules than we do for other types of molecules with more elements.
