A novel palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling reaction of organoindium compounds with vinyl and aryl triflates or iodides is described. The. reaction proceeds for alkyl-, vinyl-, alkynyl-, and arylindium compounds in excellent yields and high chemoselectivity without any excess of the organometallic. Remarkably, indium organometallics transfer efficiently the three organic groups attached to the metal.
