Diesel do nicely: The title system is a highly selective Fischer–Tropsch catalyst for the production of C10–C20 hydrocarbons (diesel fuel). The C10–C20 selectivity strongly depends on the mean size of the Ru nanoparticles. Nanoparticles with a mean size around 7 nm exhibit the highest C10–C20 selectivity (ca. 65 %) and a relatively higher turnover frequency for CO conversion.
