This review presents synthetic procedures applied to the preparation of chiral (mainly optically active)
hypervalent chalcogenuranes. The stereoisomerization mechanisms of hypervalent derivatives of sulfur, selenium
and tellurium and their selected interconversions are also presented.
Keywords: Hypervalency, chirality, sulfurane, selenurane, tellurane, Berry pseudorotation, turnstile rotation.
