Low-coordinate compounds of elements of the boron group of the periodic table are a fascinating area of research. The title compound 1 is the first example of an indium(I) compound containing two-coordinate indium atoms. The sterically demanding, electron-attracting ligand should also be able to stabilize other elements in low oxidation states.
