A series of oligogermanes, (Me3Si)3GeGeCl 3, (C6F5)3GeGePh3, (C6F5)3GeGe(p-Tol)3, and (C 6F5)2Ge[Ge(p-Tol)3]2, containing substituents with different electronic properties at neighboring germanium atoms were synthesized. According to X-ray diffraction studies, UV/visible spectroscopy, and quantum chemical calculations, these "donor-acceptor" oligogermanes are characterized by energies of electronic transitions lower than those for other similar compounds.
