Germanous Chloride, GeCl2

Germanous Chloride, GeCl2, is formed when hydrogen chloride gas is passed over the heated monosulphide, GeS. It is a colourless liquid which fumes in the air and is decomposed by water with separation of the corresponding hydroxide; it consequently possesses no saline properties. Its solution in concentrated hydrochloric acid is a powerful reducing agent.
