Abstract

Abstract The chemical reactions of cesium trichlorogermanate(II) to form RGeCl 3 compounds have been reexamined, the older methods improved upon, and new techniques put forth. In the course of these studies, tert-butyltrichlorogermane and sec-butyltrichlorogermane and their triphenyl derivatives were prepared and characterized by means of NMR and infrared spectral data, and elemental analyses. Mechanistic possibilities for the reactions involved were probed in the light of steric limitations set by the reactants, and the overriding nucleophilicity of the GeCl − 3 group.
