the metal carbon bond in a metal carbonyl has both sigma and oi character.a sima bond is formed when a metal carbonyl carbon donates alone pair of electron to the vacant d orbital of the metal.a pi bond is formed by the donaton of electron from the filled d orbital of metal to the antibonding.thus a synergic effect is created due to metal -ligand bonding.
