This thesis describes the indium(zinc)-copper promoted Barbier-type alkylation reactions of various nitrones with alkyl iodides in water; zinc-indium mediated pinacol coupling reaciton of aldehydes with α,β-unsaturated ketones in aqueous media; direct synthesis of alkyl indium reagents and their application in palladium-catalyzed coupling with aryl iodides; palladium catalyzed hydroboration of unactivated alkynes in water.
