Abstract: For the class of hereditarily unicoherent metric continua a spectrum of monotone decompositions has been developed by several authors which "improves" the quotient spaces. This spectrum is developed for a broader class of continua, namely continua with property IUC. A metric continuum $ M$ has property IUC provided each proper subcontinuum of $ M$ with interior is unicoherent. One important result which develops is that semiaposyndetic IUC continua are hereditarily arcwise connected. Also the notion of smoothness is studied for IUC continua.
