    Can anyone please refer to a link where Compton Scattering is treated considering the electron to be bound in the atom?

    Appparently this is a very messy problem. I used google (compton scattering bound electrons) and got a lot of hits (including your question). There does not seem to be any neat solution. Many of the articles were for particular elements.
