The dicationic 4(2+) complex with three N-heterocyclic carbenes coordinated to a germanium center is reported. The complex was characterized by 1H NMR and FT Raman spectroscopy, and the structure was determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Electronic structure calculations reveal a partial positive charge at germanium and that the germanium lone pair shows no evidence for bonding.
