In the crystal structure of the title compound, [Mg(C4H8O)2(C9H7)2], the two indenyl ligands are bound to the Mg atom in a manner intermediate between η1- and η3-coordination; the latter is untypical, as it includes one of the ring-sharing C atoms. The O-Mg-O angle [101.01°] is larger than for any other magnesocene-(THF)2 adduct (THF is tetrahydrofuran). A crystallographic C2 axis bisects the O-Mg-O angle.
