Facile insertion of elemental Se or Te into the C-Li bond of nBuLi in the presence of TMEDA gives [nBuXLi·TMEDA]2 (X = Se 1; Te 2). Both 1 and 2 have been fully characterised in the solid and solution states resulting in the first crystal structures of a lithium alkylselenolate and -tellurolate and giving a unique insight into the coordination chemistry of the less sterically demanding chalcogenolate ligands.
