Abstract

Germanium(i) monohalides are useful starting materials to synthesise small, well defined germanium nanoclusters. However, due to the amorphous nature of solid GeBr and GeCl, details of their solid-state structures remain largely unknown. We investigate the arrangement within these novel binary materials using 35Cl, 79Br, and 73Ge solid-state NMR spectroscopy at 21.1 T and first principles quantum chemical calculations in order to suggest a possible model for the structure.
