  1. 1.

    Disproportionation of methylchlorogermanium hydrides in the presence of aluminum chloride has been investigated. The stability of methylchorogermanium hydrides is governed by the ratio of all the groups entering the molecule and by their nature.

  2. 2.

    The authors have determined the conditions for obtaining CH3GeHCl2 and (CH3)3GeH by the replacement of chlorine in alkylchlorogermanes by hydrogen by means of organosilicon hydrides.
