Is carbon a single element to showunique nature like tetravalency ,self linking(catenation) and multiple bonds

The carbon has unique property to form bonds with other carbon atoms to give large molecules. The compounds formed may have long chains of carbon, carbon atoms bonded in a ring or branched chains of carbon.
This property of catenation is shown by other elements also but carbon exhibit these propeties to maximum extent.
Due to its smaller size, electronic configuration and maximum bond energy that is greater strength of c a r b o n minus c a r b o n bonds, carbon has tendency to form multiple bonds.
Due to small size, carbon has strong tendency to form multiple bond with other carbon atoms,oxygen atoms or nitrogen atoms.
