Azidotriphenylgermane

I. Wharf and F. Bélanger-Gariépy

Abstract: The title compound, [Ge(C6H5)3(N3)], (I), is monomeric with quasi-tetrahedral geometry around germanium. The azide group (-N[alpha]-N[beta]-N[gamma]) is disordered. One form has d(N[alpha]-N[beta]) > d(N[beta]-N[gamma]), the other has d(N[alpha]-N[beta]) < d(N[beta]-N[gamma]). In contrast, the mesityl analogue, (II), has d(N[alpha]-N[beta]) > d(N[beta]-N[gamma]). As expected, on going from (I) to (II), angle (C-Ge-C)ave increases while angle (C-Ge-N[alpha])ave decreases. However, in contrast to the silicon case, d(Ge-N[alpha]) and d(Ge-C)ave remain effectively unchanged on going from (I) to (II).
