Question

In $$\displaystyle Fe\left ( CO \right )_{5}$$, the $$\displaystyle Fe-C$$ bond possesses :


A
π character only
loader
B
σ character only
loader
C
ionic character only
loader
D
both π and σ characters
loader

Solution

The correct option is D both $$\displaystyle \pi $$ and $$\displaystyle \sigma $$ characters
The metal-carbon bond in metal carbonyls possesses both s and p character. 

M-C $$\sigma$$ bond - ligand to metal bond

M-C $$\pi$$ bond - metal to ligand

Metal-ligand: The metal to ligand bonding creates a synergic effect which strengthens the bond between $$CO$$ and the metal.

Therefore, the correct option is D.
