General description

Indium foil is widely used in nuclear facilities to capture thermal neutrons, because it shows a high cross section of neutron capture reaction. Hence, it may be used in dosemeters to measure exposure. Indium foils were studied for simultaneous monitoring neutron and photon intensities in a reactor core.

Application

Wetting behaviour of eutectic gallium-indium alloys on bare indium foil was investigated.

Liquid-embedded elastomer electronics have recently attracted much attention as key elements of highly deformable and "soft" electromechanical systems. Many of these fluid-elastomer composites utilize liquid metal alloys because of their high conductivities and inherent compliance. Understanding how these alloys interface

A reduced graphene oxide (RGO)-ZnIn(2)S(4) nanosheet composite was successfully synthesized via an in situ controlled growth process. The as-obtained RGO-ZnIn(2)S(4) composite showed excellent visible light H(2) production activity in the absence of noble metal cocatalysts.

This paper documents the first example of In(III)-catalyzed selective 6-exo-dig hydroarylation of o-propargylbiaryls and their subsequent double-bond migration to obtain functionalized phenanthrenes. Electron-rich biaryl substrates undergo hydroarylation more effectively, and the substrates with various types of substituents on the alkyne
