Abstract

This dissertation's primary focus is on expanding the chemistry of the unusually soluble inorganic indium(I) salt, indium trifluoromethanesulfonate (Indium triflate, InOTf). The utility of InOTf as a reagent required the development of a clean synthetic protocol in which the desired salt is produced in a reaction directly from indium metal.
