An organoindium compound with a In-Se bond, has been synthesized, characterized by elemental analyses, IR, 1H NMR and 13 C NMR spectroscopies, cryoscopic molecular weight studies and an X-ray structural study. The dimeric molecule crystallizes in the centrosymmetric monoclinic space-group P21c No, 14. Diffraction data were collected on a Siemens R3mV automated four circle diffractometer, and the structure was solved and refined. The four-membered In2Se2 ring has a butterfly arrangement with the phenyl groups in the anti position relative to the ring. The In-C neopentyl distances range from 2. 13511 to 2.16810 while In-Se bond distances range from 2.7481 to 2.7561. There is some rotational disorder of the methyl groups within at least one of the neopentyl -CH2 CMe3 groups.
