Condensation of the highly reactive complex [{Te(NMe2)2}] 1, prepared by the reaction of TeCl4 and Li[NMe2] (1:4 equivalents), with various organic acids has been used as a route to tellurium(II) metalloorganic complexes. The crystal structures of 1 and of Te(SCPh3)2 2, formed by the reaction of 1 with Ph3CSH (1:2 equivalents), have been determined.
