A series of N-arylimines of beta-tellurocyclohexenals 11 have been synthesized and the molecular and crystal structures of the compounds 11a-e and also beta-(dimethyltelluronium)cyclohexenal perchlorate 12 studied by X-ray crystallography. All the compounds contain strong intramolecular coordination N --> Te (O --> Te) bonds of the hypervalent type. In 11a-e, the lengths of the N --> Te bonds are within the range of 2.690-2.147 Angstrom and are 1.0-1.5 Angstrom shorter than the sum of the van… CONTINUE READING
