The electrical conductance of a series of aryl tellurium trihalides (i.e. pRC6H4TeX3: R=H, OCH3, Cl; X=Cl, Br, I) has been measured in dimethylsulphoxide(DMSO) and dimethylformamide(DMF) at 298K. The results indicated that their behavior was as weak electrolytes. The conductance data were analyzed by a minimization technique using complete and modified equations of Pitt (P) and Fuoss – Hsia (F/H) equations. The variation in the three parameters KA, o and a was fully investigated. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd
