The results of the thermolysis of 1:2 adducts of stable group-14 element divalent compounds [R2M:, R2=1,1,4,4-tetrakis(trimethylsilyl)butane-1,4-diyl; 1b, M=Ge; 1c, M=Sn] to TEMPO radical are discussed in detail. Whereas the thermal reactions of the 1:2 adducts [R2M(OR′)2, R′=2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidin-N-yl; 3b, M=Ge; 3c, M=Sn] are understood to proceed by the initial homolysis of an M-O bond to give the corresponding aminoxy-substituted group-14 element radicals [R2(R′O)M; 2b, M=Ge; 2c, M=Sn] and TEMPO, the subsequent reactions of 2b and 2c were remarkably different to each other; 2b favors the N-O bond fission (path b) to give the corresponding germanone, while 2c prefers the M-O bond fission (path a) to give stannylene (1c). In combining with our previous results for aminoxysilyl radical (2a) [R2(R′O)Si], the origin of the remarkable differences in the reactivity among group-14 element radicals 2a-2c is discussed on the basis of the theoretical calculations for model reactions.Improved syntheses of the precursor dichlorogermane and dichlorostannane of germylene (1b) and stannylene (1c), respectively, are described in Section 3.
