A palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling reaction of alkyl-, vinyl-, alkynyl-, and arylindium compounds with vinyl and aryl triflates or iodides proceeds in excellent yields and high chemoselectivity without any excess of the organometallic. Remarkably, indium organometallics transfer efficiently all organic groups attached to the metal.
