The iatermolecular orbital theory of interactions has been used to investigate the reaction of singlet CCl2, SiCl2, and GeCl2 with ethylene and 1,3-butadiene and to show that the probability of the synchronous 1,4-cycloaddition of these particles to butadiene increases as we go from dichlorocarbene to dichlorosilylene and dichlorogermylene.
