Selenolato and tellurolato complexes of metals as well as metal complexes with selenoether and telluroether ligands have been extensively studied for a long time and periodically reviewed with relevance to transition-metal-catalyzed reactions. However, only sporadically are papers available for the coordination chemistry of carbon-selenium and carbon-tellurium multiple-bond molecules as supporting ligands for transition metals. Consequently, this chapter highlights the developments in fundamental coordination chemistry of group 6–10 transition metals having such relatively ignored organo-selenium and -tellurium compounds as ligands; the simplest organo-selenium and -tellurium species, that is, seleno- and tellurocarbonyl (carbon monoselenide, CSe and carbon monotelluride, CTe), which are heavier analogs of carbonyl (carbon monooxide, CO) ligand, and seleno- and tellurocarbonyl compounds (>C=Se and >C=Te).
