3-tert-Butyl-2-benzotelluropyrylium salt (13A) react with lithium dialkyl(phenyl)copper to give in good yield the corresponding isotellurochromenes (15A) having a carbon functional group at the C-1 position. Similarly, the 1-substituted isoselenochromenes (15B) and the 4-substituted tellurochromene (19) were also prepared from the corresponding pyrylium salts (13B, 18). The obtained isotellurochromenes (15A) were easily converted into the corresponding 2,4-disubstituted 2-benzotelluropyrylium salts (20) by the treatment with triphenylcarbenium tetrafluoroborate (Ph3C+ BF4-).
