why Carbon 4(+ve & -ve )is not possible ?

Carbon has a very high ionisation potential and cannot be oxidised to C4+ .But C4- has been found in some substances.For example,with reactive metals, such as tungsten, carbon forms either carbides (C4–), or acetylides (C22–) to form alloys with high melting points.
