Iron pentacarbonyl,Fe(CO)5 is an molecule of transition metal with non-spherical d-subshell.It has trigonal bipyramidal geometry, having axial bonds which are shorter than equatorial bond which are longer.This molecule has d8 configuration.Shorter axial bonds than equatorial is due to the result of interaction with the d sub-shell.
