The effect of low concentrations of nitric oxide on the hydrogen-atom initiated decomposition of monogermane at room temperature has been studied by a mass-spectrometric technique. Initiation by hydrogen atoms, formed by mercury photosensitization of hydrogen-rich mixtures, insure the primary decomposition path to be one forming germyl free radicals. The nitric oxide reacts efficiently with germyl radicals thereby completely suppressing the normal formation of digermane until the nitric oxide concentration has been greatly reduced. The products of the suppression reaction are digermylether (digermoxane), nitrous oxide, nitrogen and a solid containing germanium, hydrogen and oxygen. A mechanism to account for these experimental facts is proposed and some of the rate constants of the elementary chemical reactions have been estimated.
