Tin-decorated ruthenium nanoparticles: a way to tune selectivity in hydrogenation reaction.


Two series of ruthenium nanoparticles stabilized either by a polymer (polyvinylpyrrolidone; Ru/PVP) or a ligand (bisdiphenylphosphinobutane; Ru/dppb) were reacted with tributyltin hydride [(n-C4H9)3SnH] leading to tin-decorated ruthenium nanoparticles, Ru/PVP/Sn and Ru/dppb/Sn. The Sn/Ru molar ratio was varied in order to study the influence of the surface… (More)
