  1. 1.

    In the reaction of phenol, acetic and benzoic acids with an equimolar amount of bis(triethylgermyl) cadmium, there is a selective heterolysis of the Ge-Cd-Ge group, and phenoxy- or acyloxy(triethylgermyl) cadmium compounds are formed, respectively.

  2. 2.

    The reaction of benzoyl peroxide with bis(triethylgermyl)- and bis(triphenylgermyl) cadmium leads to selective cleavage of the heteroelement-heteroelement bonds.
