Abstract

The novel chlorogermyliumylidene complex L[ClGe:]+ (L = 1,8-bis(tri-n-butylphosphanzenyl)naphthalene) with a “naked” Cl- as a counter anion was synthesized through reaction of L with Cl2Ge: and fully characterized. Its reaction with elemental sulfur afforded the first germathionium [ClGeS]+ cation containing species. The latter has also been fully characterized, including single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis.
