The Raman spectrum of Ge(2)Cl(6) shows close analogies with that of the isoelectronic [Ga(2)Cl(6)](2)(-). A band at 262 cm(-)(1) is assigned as principally a Ge-Ge stretching mode. The compound is very moisture-sensitive and decomposes readily in vacuo to give GeCl(4)...

Direct conversion of carbohydrates into 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) catalyzed by germanium(IV) chloride in ionic liquids has been investigated in search of an efficient and environmentally friendly process. Monosaccharides D-fructose and D-glucose, disaccharides sucrose and maltose, and even the polysaccharide cellulose were...
