The linear oligogermyl amide 2, Ph3GeGeMe2NMe2, was obtained by reacting Ph3GeLi with 1, Me2Ge(Cl)NMe2. The amide 2 was used for the synthesis of molecular oligogermanes 3, Ph3GeGeMe2Ge(C6F5)3, and 4, [Ph3GeGeMe2]2Ge(C6F5)2, containing electron donor (Me, Ph) and acceptor (C6F5) groups, by using a hydrogermolysis reaction in n-hexane. The molecular structures of 3 and 4 were studied by XRD. It was shown that in a crystal 3 forms wide channels, in which the solvated nonpolar n-hexane molecule is present. The NMR (1H, 13C and 19F), optical (UV/vis absorption, luminescence) and electrochemical (cyclic voltammetry) properties of both compounds were also studied. The impact of the substitution type by the electron withdrawing groups (at the terminal position, such as in 3, or within the compound, such as in 5), on the physical properties was also studied.
