On the basis of Fourier component analysis of internal rotation around the C-X bond in α- and β-functional derivatives of the type Y-(CH2)n-X (X = NH2, OH; Y = CH3, SiH3, GeH3; n = 1, 2) the nature of intramolecular interactions in these compounds was analysed. Electronic effects of polarisable silyl and germyl groups were found to be dramatically influenced by the molecular conformation.
