Hidden depths: Heterogeneous catalysts containing single-site ruthenium–bis-N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) species are obtained by designing tailored hybrid organic–inorganic materials and in situ transformations, leading to final Ru-NHC units. These catalysts represent promising alternatives to homogeneous complexes with comparable activities (turnover number of ca. 3000).
