BaInGeH was synthesized by hydrogenating the intermetallic compound BaInGe. The crystal structure determination from the powder neutron diffraction data of BaInGeD [P3m1, Z = 1, a = 4.5354(3) Å, c = 5.2795(6) Å] reveals the presence of hydrogen in tetrahedral voids defined by three Ba atoms and one In atom.
