Abstract : A new, unsymmetric allyl-(alkyl) telluride compound has been synthesized and found to be useful as a tellurium source compound in the Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition film growth process. According to the present invention, the new unsymmetric allyl-(alkyl) telluride compound methyl allyl telluride and other unsymmetrical allyl-(alkyl) telluride compounds are prepared by adding an allyl Grignard to a tellurium/tetrahydrofuran slurry and subsequent reaction with an alkyl halide under an inert atmosphere and at temperatures low enough to prevent uncontrolled exothermic reaction. The unsymmetric allyl-(alkyl) telluride product is easily isolated by filtration followed by vacuum distillation. An object of this invention is the new compound allyl methyl telluride.
