Indium acetylacetonate, also known as In(acac)3, is a compound with formula In(C5H7O2)3. It is the indium complex of acetylacetone.

Uses[edit]

Indium acetylacetonate and tin(II) acetylacetonate can be used to prepare indium‐tin oxide thin films with an atmospheric‐pressure chemical vapor deposition method. The resulting thin films are transparent and conductive, with a thickness of about 200 nanometers.[2] Indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) can also be produced with indium acetylacetonate. Thin-film CIGS solar cells are synthesized with atomic layer chemical vapour deposition (ALCVD) using In(acac)3 and hydrogen sulfide. [3]
