Indium Trichloride (InCl3)
Indium trichloride (InCl3) is a white, odorless, and highly deliquescent powder. Its particles are flake or plate-shaped and highly soluble in water and mineral acids.
Indium trichloride is used as a starting compound for the synthesis of other inorganic and organic indium compounds, for example TMI (tri-methyl indium), which is the most widely used metal-organic precursor for indium.
Indium trichloride is also used as an additive to alkaline batteries to reduce outgassing and improve operational efficiency of the battery when under electrical load. Indium trichloride is available as an anhydrous powder and as a solution up to its solubility limit.
Used in a wide range of applications, including LEDs and lighting and the semiconductor component manufacturing, indium trichloride is a versatile compound needed at a myriad of industries.

Our friends at North Carolina State University are at it again – doing interesting things with liquid metals.
Here are some things you need to know if you are planning on using liquid metal.
For some reason, I find the combination of gold and indium incredibly interesting. This shouldn’t come as a surprise; I caught gold fever panning for gold during a trip to Alaska, and “indium fever” is a pre-requisite for my job. Well, if it isn’t – it should be.
