no, oxygen doesnot exhibit catenation property . 
catenation is simply defined as the tendency of the element to form bonds with itself .. 
and it can do it if they ahve vacant orbital . 
so, oxygen cannot from the bond with itself . 
but in the case of carbon catenation is possible .. 
HOPE IT CLEARS YOUR DOUBT ..
