ICE Ice is not an element, but iodine is. It will sublime - meaning it will go from a solid state to a gaseous state. Another common example is a compound, dry ice, which is solid carbon dioxide. Under the proper conditions, most elements will sublime. Consult the phase diagram for a given element to find out the conditions required.
