Abstract: Lithium, sodium and potassium reduce smoothly elemental tellurium to telluride (Te2-) and ditelluride (Te) anions in the tetrahydrofuran, THF, medium in the presence catalytic amounts of naphthalene. The relative reactivities of these alkali metal tellurides towards alkyl bromides ave been investigated and a number of dialkyl tellurides . and dialkyl ditellurides prepared in good to excellent yields. The compounds prepared are characterised by elemental analysis, 1H NMR and mass spectral studies.
