Methods for the selective chlorination of organogermylhydrides are given by the selective functionalization of organogermylhydrides of types R 3GeH, R 2GeH 2 and RGeH 3 (R = alkyl, aryl). The use of trichloroisocyanuric acid (TCCA) allows the direct conversion of Ge-H functions into their monochlorinated derivatives R 2Ge(Cl)H and RGe(Cl)H 2.
