MetadataShow full item record
The title compound, C(15)H(17)NTe, is a heteroleptic Te, N-bidentate ligand having a short Te center dot center dot center dot N contact [2.8079 (16) angstrom] involving a secondary bonding interaction between the amino N and Te(II) atoms. The Te-C bond [2.136 (2) angstrom] trans to the amino group is slightly elongated compared to the other Te-C bond [2.1242 (18) angstrom] due to the hypervalent interaction. The bond angle for the trans N-Te-C atoms [164.92 (6)degrees] deviates significantly from linearity.
