It there any other element other than gold, that does not exist as a chemical compound?
BTW - a compound is not a mixture of two or more elements because, if it were, it would be a mixture and not a compound.

I assumed Tommy meant elements that could be described in their natural state by an unadorned symbol (you find lumps of Au in the ground if you know where to look) without subscript or other element - but re-reading there was no good reason for my assumption.
