Abstract: A (N,Te,N) ligand 2-(2-pyridoethyletelluro)ethylpyridine (1) has been synthesized by reacting in situ generated Na2Te with 2-(2-chloroethyl)pyridine. The PdII and PtII complexes of stoichiometry [MCl·1]Cl have been studied. The deshielding of ortho protons of pyridine and CH2Te signal (up to 0.5 ppm) indicate that 1 ligates in a tridentate mode. The red shift (20–25 cm−1) in ν(Te---C(alkyl)) supports the involvement of Te in coordination. Molecular weights and ΛM values of these complexes support their ionic nature (1 : 1 electrolyte). The reactions of 2-(chloromethyl)pyridine and 2,6-bis(chloromethyl)pyridine with ArTeNa (Ar = 4-MeOC6H4) could not produce (N,Te) and Te,N,Te) ligands comprising pyridyl groups. The CHCl3 present as a solvent in these reactions reacted with ArTeNa resulting in (ArTe)2CH2. To understand the behaviour of Te donor site vis-à-vis pyridyl group the single crystal structure of Pd{4-MeC6H4TeCH2CH2-2-(C5H4N)}Cl2 · 2CHCl3 was solved. An endo, puckered chelate ring is formed by (N,Te) ligand. The trans influence of the pyridyl group appears to be lower or comparable to that of tellurium.
