X-Ray Crystal Structure of an Organoindium Alkoxide Dimer, (Ph2InOSiMe3)2
The solid-state structure of (Ph2InOSiMe3)2, 1. has been established by single-crystal X-ray analysis. Monoclinic crystals of 1 belong to space group P21/c, with a = 9.136(1), b = 15.503(2), c = 11.836(1) A, β= 102.46(1)°, Z = 2. Refinement of atomic parameters converged at R =0.050 (Rw = 0.063) over 1718 observed reflections with l>3.0σ(I). The dimeric molecule lies on a crystallographic centre of symmetry with In-0 = 2.159(7) and 2.149(8) A, O-In-O = 78.9(3)°, and In-O-In= 101.1(3)°. Compound 1 is only the second example of a simple dimeric organoindium alkoxide to be structurally characterized in this manner. © 1993, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. All rights reserved.
