The Cl– diadduct [nBu4N]2[A·2Cl] of the mixed cyclohexatetrelane (SiCl2)5(GeMe2), A, is accessible from Me2GeCl2, 6 eq. Si2Cl6, and 2 eq. [nBu4N]Cl in one step (96%). Free, tenfold functionalized A can be released from the primary product by decomplexation with AlCl3 (78%). Insight into the assembly mechanism of [nBu4N]2[A·2Cl] and the reactivity of A is provided.
