In the title compound, [Ge(C9H11O)2(C6H16N2)], the GeII atom is coordinated in a distorted trigonal–pyramidal geometry by two O atoms belonging to two 2,4,6-trimethylphenolate ligands and one N atom of a tetramethylethylenediamine ligand. Comparing the structure with published data of similar compounds shows that the Ge—O bonds are covalent and the Ge—N bond is coordinated.
