The triphosphine−indane TPI ([o-i-Pr2P(C6H4)]3In) has been prepared and found to react with [Pd(P-t-Bu3)2] and [AuCl(SMe2)]. According to X-ray diffraction analyses and DFT calculations, the ensuing complexes both display original donor−acceptor M→In interactions, although of markedly different nature and magnitude.
