A diarylgermylene [Tbt(Tip)Ge:] kinetically stabilized by 2,4,6-tris-[bis(trimethylsilyl)methyl]phenyl (Tbt) and 2,4,6-triisopropylphenyl (Tip) groups was allowed to react with phenyl isothiocyanate to afford a germanium-containing four-membered heterocycle, 4-imino-1,3,2-dithiagermetane derivative via [2+2]cycloaddition reaction of initially formed diarylgermanethione [Tbt(Tip)Ge=S], the intermediacy of which was evidenced by electronic spetroscopy.
