Frost, C. G.; Hartley, J. P.; Griffin, D.
Indium(III) triflamide (In(NTf2)3) has been prepared in high yield and has been demonstrated to be an efficient, recoverable catalyst for a range of aromatic electrophilic substitution reactions. When compared to other indium(III) complexes, anomalous reactivities Suggest a non-innocent role for the counterion in the studied processes.
