Is it homogeneous or heterogeneous catalysis? Identification of bulk ruthenium metal as the true catalyst in benzene hydrogenations starting with the monometallic precursor, Ru(II)( η 6 -C 6 Me 6 )(OAc) 2 , plus kinetic characterization of the heterogeneous nucleation, then autocatalytic surface-growth mechanism of metal film formation
A reinvestigation of the true catalyst in a benzene hydrogenation system beginning with Ru(II)-(η6-C6Me6)(OAc) 2 as the precatalyst is reported. The key observations leading to the conclusion that the true catalyst is bulk ruthenium metal particles, and
