7Dipp Complexes of the group 13 binary hydrides GaH3 and InH3 have been prepared. Both adducts possess excellent thermal stability in the solid state but decompose readily in solution at ambient temperature. The presence of short M-H···H-CAlkyl distances in the structures of both [MH3(7Dipp)] complexes is discussed.
