Abstract

The use of a well-chosen catalyst is instrumental for the development of more efficient, economical and environmentally friendly reactions. In recent decades, indium-based catalysts have proven to be competitive and useful alternatives to transition-metal catalysts such as silver and gold. In this short review, we present some of the recent advances in indium(III)-catalyzed transformations of alkynes, with a focus on cyclization reactions.
