Abstract

The reactions of TeCl4 with 1 or 2 equivalents of enol silyl ethers yielded trichloro(2‐oxoalkyl)telluriums or dichlorobis(2‐oxoalkyl)telluriums, respectively, in high yields. Stepwise addition of two different enol silyl ethers to TeCl4 in CH2Cl2 led to the selective formation of unsymmetrical dichlorobis(2‐oxoalkyl)telluriums.
