    Stability of Carbonyl Complexes.

    The question is: Why is V(CO)6 stable but Pt(CO)4 and Zn(CO)4 are unstable? As far as I can see V complex is 17e and Pt complex 18e which would imply the opposite stabilities. For the Zn complex I have some ideas. It has an s2d10 config and d orbitals contract quickly across TM period...
