Indium(III) nitrate is a nitrate salt of indium which forms various hydrates. Only the pentahydrate has been crystallographically verified. Other hydrates are also reported in literature, such as the trihydrate.
Only the pentahydrate has been structurally elucidated. The pentahydrate consists of octahedral [In(NO3)(H2O)5]2+ centers as well as two nitrates and is monoclinic.
