A series of novel, low-valent germanium compounds have been obtained by the reaction of Ge[N(SiMe3)2]2 with various diamines or by the metathesis reaction of [GeCl2·dioxane] with lithium amides. The oxidative insertion, [1+4] cycloaddition, and oxidation reactions of the synthesized germylenes were investigated. All the synthesized germylenes are monomeric.
