Description

Until about thirty years ago, tellurium, the fourth of the oxygen family of the Periodic Table, was practically unknown in organic chemistry books. The many classes of organotellurium compounds described in the chemical literature in the first half of the century, were little more than chemical curiosities. However, over the past decades tellurium reagents have become unique and powerful chemical tools. Research groups all over the world now employ tellurium in organic transformations, and new uses of tellurium reagents in synthesis appear regularly. The main purpose of this book is to help the practitioner to prepare selected inorganic tellurium reagents and organotellurium compounds, and to apply these reagents in organic synthesis. The text discusses in detail the most significant reactions performed with tellurium reagents, including selective oxidations, selective reductions, the removal of protecting groups, and organotellurides and carbon radical scavengers, all under mild conditions.

Review quote

The book is a very useful general reference on organotellurium chemistry which may prove particularly interesting to chemists versed in the organosulfur and organoselenium literature. A detailed experimental procedure is givenin each case. This will be an invaluable compendium of information for workers in the field and is likely to be consulted as frequently in the laboratory as in the library. [This book]...deserves to find a place in all university libraries, as well as onthe shelves of researchers in the field. --Frank S.
