The conversion of phenones into conjugated trienes via germylene based cycloaddition reaction was investigated. The molecular modeling calculations based on DFT theory were performed to explore the comparative energetics of the formed products. The cycloaddition reaction at room temperature gave quantitative results that had some functional group tolerance.
