Properties  convex 
In fivedimensional geometry, a demipenteract or 5demicube is a semiregular 5polytope, constructed from a 5hypercube (penteract) with alternated vertices removed.
It was discovered by Thorold Gosset. Since it was the only semiregular 5polytope (made of more than one type of regular facets), he called it a 5ic semiregular. E. L. Elte identified it in 1912 as a semiregular polytope, labeling it as HM_{5} for a 5dimensional half measure polytope.
Coxeter named this polytope as 1_{21} from its Coxeter diagram, which has branches of length 2, 1 and 1 with a ringed node on one of the short branches, and Schläfli symbol or {3,3^{2,1}}.
It exists in the k_{21} polytope family as 1_{21} with the Gosset polytopes: 2_{21}, 3_{21}, and 4_{21}.
The graph formed by the vertices and edges of the demipenteract is sometimes called the Clebsch graph, though that name sometimes refers to the folded cube graph of order five instead.
