The synthesis of tris(pentafluoroethyl)germanium derivatives is described. The reaction of germanium tetrachloride with three equivalents of the pentafluoroethylation reagent LiC2 F5 does not lead selectively to the formation of tris(pentafluoroethyl)chlorogermane, (C2 F5 )3 GeCl. Here the introduction of a diethylamino function as a protecting group was… CONTINUE READING
