Peripherally functionalized low-valent main group species allow for the introduction/interconversion of functional groups without increasing the formal oxidation state of the main group center. Herein, we report a straightforward method for the incorporation of a α-chlorosilyl moiety adjacent to the NHC-coordinated germanium(II) center. View Full-Text
