Reactions between acetylenes and a stable digermyne bearing 4-t-Bu-2,6-[CH(SiMe3)2]2-C6H2 (Tbb) groups afforded the corresponding stable 1,2-digermabenzenes together with the respective 1,4-digermabarrelenes. The properties of the obtained products and the reaction mechanism are discussed on the basis of experimental and theoretical results. Especially, the aromaticity of the newly obtained 1,2-digermabenzene has been discussed on the detailed calculations, revealing its aromatic character to some degree.
