The crystal structures of the isosturctural title compounds. [Ga(S2C·NEt2)3] (I) and [In(S2C·NEt2)3](II), have been determined by direct methods from X-ray diffraction data and refined by full-matrix least-squares to R 0.034 and 0.037 for 1 119(I) and 2 054 (II) observed diffractometer reflections. Crystals are monoclinic, space group A2/a, (Z = 4), with unit-cell dimensions: (I): a = 14.862 (3), b = 10.244(2), c = 17.863(2) Å, β = 117.49(1)°:(II): a = 14.826(5), b = 10.396(5), c = 18.139(3) Å, β = 117.88(3)°. The array of discrete molecules represent a new structural type among the [M(S2C·NEt2)3] derivatives. The three ligands within each molecule are quasi-symmetric bidentate with an overall approximate D3 molecular symmetry (mean Ga-S 2.436, In-S 2.597 Å).
