As a member of chalcogen elements, tellurium is not as well known as oxygen, sulfur and selenium. As the "invisible" element in the periodic table of elements, it appears less frequently in the sight of chemists. However, in the past few decades, as the "emerald in the dark", tellurium has always played a unique role in the fields of materials science, medicine and biology, and attracted more and more chemists. In the eyes of some chemists, the performances of tellurium compounds in organic chemistry, as a "new substances", are undoubtedly eye-catching. Therefore, in recent years, there are increasing reports on the organic chemistry of tellurium compounds. In order to further understand these research progresses, the typical works are briefly summarized for readers' references.

Key words: tellurium, element chemistry, chalcogen, green synthetic chemistry, tellurium catalysis
