Abstract

Higher molecular weight polygermanes were synthesized by a ligand substitution polymerization of the 1,4-dioxane complex of germanium dichloride with organolithium compounds at a lower reaction temperature. Different from the conventional Wurtz-type coupling reaction, the present polymerization gives rise much higher yields of polygermanes.
