In fourdimensional geometry, the rectified 5cell is a uniform 4polytope composed of 5 regular tetrahedral and 5 regular octahedral cells. Each edge has one tetrahedron and two octahedra. Each vertex has two tetrahedra and three octahedra. In total it has 30 triangle faces, 30 edges, and 10 vertices. Each vertex is surrounded by 3 octahedra and 2 tetrahedra; the vertex figure is a triangular prism.
Topologically, under its highest symmetry, [3,3,3], there is only one geometrical form, containing 5 regular tetrahedra and 5 rectified tetrahedra (which is geometrically the same as a regular octahedron). It is also topologically identical to a tetrahedronoctahedron segmentochoron.
The vertex figure of the rectified 5cell is a uniform triangular prism, formed by three octahedra around the sides, and two tetrahedra on the opposite ends.^{[1]}
Despite having the same number of vertices as cells (10) and the same number of edges as faces (30), the rectified 5cell is not selfdual because the vertex figure (a uniform triangular prism) is not a dual of the polychoron's cells.
Seen in a configuration matrix, all incidence counts between elements are shown. The diagonal fvector numbers are derived through the Wythoff construction, dividing the full group order of a subgroup order by removing one mirror at a time.^{[2]}

Together with the simplex and 24cell, this shape and its dual (a polytope with ten vertices and ten triangular bipyramid facets) was one of the first 2simple 2simplicial 4polytopes known. This means that all of its twodimensional faces, and all of the twodimensional faces of its dual, are triangles. In 1997, Tom Braden found another dual pair of examples, by gluing two rectified 5cells together; since then, infinitely many 2simple 2simplicial polytopes have been constructed.^{[3]}^{[4]}
It is one of three semiregular 4polytope made of two or more cells which are Platonic solids, discovered by Thorold Gosset in his 1900 paper. He called it a tetroctahedric for being made of tetrahedron and octahedron cells.^{[5]}
E. L. Elte identified it in 1912 as a semiregular polytope, labeling it as tC_{5}.

Tetrahedroncentered perspective projection into 3D space, with nearest tetrahedron to the 4D viewpoint rendered in red, and the 4 surrounding octahedra in green. Cells lying on the far side of the polytope have been culled for clarity (although they can be discerned from the edge outlines). The rotation is only of the 3D projection image, in order to show its structure, not a rotation in 4D space.

More simply, the vertices of the rectified 5cell can be positioned on a hyperplane in 5space as permutations of (0,0,0,1,1) or (0,0,1,1,1). These construction can be seen as positive orthant facets of the rectified pentacross or birectified penteract respectively.
This polytope is the vertex figure of the 5demicube, and the edge figure of the uniform 2_{21} polytope.
It is also one of 9 Uniform 4polytopes constructed from the [3,3,3] Coxeter group.

The rectified 5cell is second in a dimensional series of semiregular polytopes. Each progressive uniform polytope is constructed as the vertex figure of the previous polytope. Thorold Gosset identified this series in 1900 as containing all regular polytope facets, containing all simplexes and orthoplexes (tetrahedrons and octahedrons in the case of the rectified 5cell). The Coxeter symbol for the rectified 5cell is 0_{21}.
