A ruthenium tellurocarbonyl (CTe) complex with a cyclopentadienyl ligand: systematic studies of a series of chalcogenocarbonyl complexes [CpRuCl(CE)(H2IMes)] (E = O, S, Se, Te)†
The first tellurocarbonyl complex with a half-sandwich structure [CpRuCl(CTe)(H2IMes)] was synthesized by a ligand substitution reaction. The practically complete series of the CpCE complexes [CpRuCl(CE)(H2IMes)] (E = O, S, Se, Te) were systematically explored. The tellurium atom in the CTe complex could be smoothly replaced with lighter chalcogen atoms.
