Captivating chemistry: The effect of capping agents on a carbon-nanofiber-supported Ru catalyst for the Fischer–Tropsch (FT) reaction was investigated. The activity depended on the strength of the interactions between the organic capping agent and the Ru particles. Kinetic data suggest that the FT mechanism was largely unaffected by the capping agents. The use of an apolar solvent increased the rate of formation of hydrocarbons, but not that of oxygenates.
