The use of indium based catalysts in organic synthetic transformations was investigated. Indium(III) complexes acted as efficient Lewis acid catalysts in organoindium chemistry. Catalytic reactions in water and aqueous media were studied where indium exhibited unique activity due to its high coordination number and fast coordination-dissociation equilibrium.
