Ruthenium (Ru)

After initial reports on the discovery of the rare transition metal ruthenium, Carl Claus clearly isolated this companion element to platinum in 1844. It is great importance to large-scale syntheses, e.g. to the hydrogenation of C=O groups and aromatic hydrocarbons (e.g. benzene to cyclohexene). Also, developments are also using ruthenium catalysts, e.g. the “KAAP” process for the synthesis of ammonia (NH3) from the elements hydrogen (H2) and nitrogen (N2). Ruthenium as co-catalyst is of interest for the manufacture of “Gas to Liquid” catalysts.
