Carbon Has the Highest Melting Point.

Out of all the elements, carbon has the highest melting point of all elements. In fact, at atmospheric pressure, it has no actual melting point as its triple point is 10 MPa. It sublimates at temperatures above 4000 K. This means that carbon remains solid at higher temperatures than the highest melting point metals such as tungsten or rhenium.
