Give an example of an element or atom which does not show catenation.

Lead does not show any catenation.

Catenation property means covalent bond formation within another carbon atom. It is due to the bonding of the p-p orbital of carbon atoms to form a long chain. Carbon shows catenation to a maximum extent because of its electronic configuration and tendency to form strong covalent bonds.

    • Long chains of carbon can be formed because of the property of catenation.
    • The bonds are strong and stable.
