This chapter reviews studies into the preparation of thio-, seleno-, and telluro-carboxylic acid esters (referred to thiol, selenol, and tellurol esters, respectively) and into their use in organic synthesis. The studies reviewed here span the last ten years, although some important and original findings reported further back than this are also included.
