Abstract

The preparation and structure of the first scorpionate complex of a group 16 element, [Te(kappa(2) -Tm-Me)(2)], is reported. It displays square planar geometry at the Te atom and two distinct ligand conformations. In addition, the first pyrazolylborate complex of a group 15 element, [Bi(Tp)(2)(pzH)Cl], has been synthesized and characterized.
