The GeNi molecule has been shown to exist in the vapor phase over liquid solutions of germanium and nickel above 2000 K. Using information derived from a combination of effusion and mass spectrometric techniques, the energies and equilibrium constants of the gaseous reactions GeNi Ge Ge2 Ni and GeNi Ge Ni have been calculated. The values of the energy assuming a singlet sigma ground state of GeNi are GeNi Ge Ge2 Ni delta internal energy 1.6 plus or minus 4 kcal and GeNi Ge Ni dissociation energy GeNi 66.4 plus or minus 4 kcal. The dissociation energy of Ge2 was also determined and the value of 64.9 plus or minus 3 kcal confirms results obtained previously. Author
