By suitable choice of parameters, the CNDO/2 method of calculation of molecular properties has been extended to include germanium atoms. Calculations have been made of energy-minimising bond lengths for germaethylene and fluorinated germaethylenes and of various properties of these optimised geometry models. These suggest that the germanium-carbon double bond would have somewhat unusual characteristics. © 1976.
