Abstract

Highly active and selective: A supported Ru5PtSn nanoparticle cluster (the picture shows an axial projection of a tomogram), prepared from the carbonyl cluster [PtRu5(CO)15(μ-SnPh 2)(μ6-C)], is an excellent catalyst in the single-step hydrogenation of dimethyl terephthalate to cyclohexanedimethanol under mild conditions (100°C, 20 bar H2). (Figure Presented).
