    The reaction between [In(NEt2)3]2 and N(CH2CH2NMeH)3 yields the N,N′,N″-trimethylazaindatrane dimer [N(CH2-CH2NMe)3In]2 (1). The composition and structure of 1 were established by 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy as well as by an X-ray diffraction study. The X-ray structure shows that both indium atoms are pentacoordinate, with widely differing In-N distances. The structural parameters of 1 were compared with those obtained from a computational study. (
