A preparative technique for dichlorogermylene for vapour phase investigation is described. An electron diffraction study on a mixture of GeCI2 and GeCl4 in the vapour phase reproduced earlier results for the tetrachloride structure and showed the bond angle to be 107 ± 5° in GeCl2. This result, with its large error limit, is in conformity with structural variations observed for other dihalide molecules.
