Abstract

[TmBut]In, the first structurally-characterized monovalent indium compound that features a sulfur-rich coordination environment, has been synthesized via treatment of InCl with [TmBut]K; in contrast to the thallium counterpart, the lone pair of [TmBut]In is a site of reactivity, thereby allowing formation of [TmBut]In→B(C 6F5)3 and [TmBut] In(κ2-S4) upon treatment with B(C6F 5)3 and S8, respectively.
