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.

Indium Alloy Blog Posts
Today's Indium Mailbag question asks about the storage of indium-contained solder paste at a temperture well below the recommended temperature of -20.
Indium Mailbag is a series of blog posts where we discuss common indium-related questions. Today we answer the question: “What is the process for reclaiming indium and how much can it get for it?”
Today we discuss the technology behind the paper: “Extreme Toughening of Soft Materials with Liquid Metal” with Dr. Navid Kazem.
