Substituent effects on the potential energy surface of X2GeS (X=H, F, Cl, Br, CH3, and SiH3) were studied by using the B3LYP and CCSD(T) methods. Our theoretical investigations indicate that the kinetic and thermodynamic stabilities of substituted germanethiones are strongly dependent on the substituent. That is to say, dihalogen substitution can dramatically stabilize X2GeS with respect to XGe–SX. Thus, F2GeS, Cl2GeS and Br2GeS should be viable candidates for experimental observation.
