Carbazoles and indiums: The ability of substituted carbazol-9-yl systems to ligate in σ-fashion through the amido N-donor, or to adopt alternative coordination modes through the π system of the central five-membered ring, can be tuned by systematic variation in the steric demands of substituents in the 1- and 8-positions. The differing affinities of the two modes of coordination for hard and soft metal centres can be shown to influence not only cation selectivity, but also the redox properties of the metal centre (see figure).
