In the title compound, one molecule of CHCl3, is also present in each asymmetric unit. The germanium adopts a distorted tetrahedral coordination geometry [C-Ge-C: 106.5(1) - 111.7(1)degrees]. experimental error [1.951(3) - 1.955(3) Angstrom], however Ge-C(22) of the substituted propanoic acid is significantly longer [1.997(3) Angstrom]. The molecule dimerises through hydrogen bonds between carboxylic acid groups, in a conventional Manner. The hydrogen bor.d is relatively strong [O(1)...O(2'): 2.661(2); H(2A)-O(1'): 1.81(4) Angstrom;
