Epub 2011 Sep 8.Reaction of 2-[(dimethylamino)methyl]aniline with butyllithium, followed by conversion with trimethylsilyl, triphenylsilyl, triphenylgermyl, trimethylstannyl, or tri-n-butylstannyl chloride, gives the corresponding substituted aniline. These compounds were further deprotonated by butyllithium and reacted with germanium, tin, and lead dichlorides, respectively, in both stoichiometric ratios 2:1 and 1:1, providing the target homo- ([2-(Me(2)NCH(2))C(6)H(4)(YR(3))N](2)M) and heteroleptic ([2-(Me(2)NCH(2))C(6)H(4)(YR(3))N]MCl) germylenes and stannylenes, where M = Ge, Sn, Y = Si, Ge, and R = Me, Ph.
