The synthetic process to obtain triacylgermenolates with alternated counterions by single-electron-transfer reactions or by a direct approach is described. The formation of these derivatives was confirmed by NMR spectroscopy and UV-vis spectroscopy. Moreover, metal-metal exchange reactions of potassium-substituted triacylgermenolate 2a with MgBr2, ZnCl2, and HgCl2 are presented. Additionally, 2a was reacted with nBu4NBr, which led to the formation of ammonia-substituted triacylgermenolate 8. Furthermore, we reacted 2a with HCl/Et2O to obtain triacylgermane 9. Subsequently, we investigated the reaction of 9 with tBu2Zn and tBu2Hg. NMR spectroscopy, single-crystal X-ray crystallography, and UV-vis spectroscopy are employed for analysis of structural properties.
