Which elements do not form ionic bonds?

Ionic bonds are formed between metals and nonmetals. Therefore, almost any element can form ionic bonds. However, since carbon's electron configuration is such that it can accommodate four covalent bonds, it forms covalent bonds very readily. Therefore, it is never seen in ionic compounds.
