Abstract

Ru3(CO)12, supported on silica in the absence of oxygen, reacts with silanol groups of the surface to produce a grafted cluster {A figure is presented}, which has been characterized by IR and Raman spectroscopy; the molecular formula of this cluster is in agreement with the stoichiometric balance of CO evolved during its formation from Ru3(CO)12. The grafted cluster is an intermediate step to produce by thermal decomposition small metallic ruthenium particles of 14 Å together with some Ru(II) carbonyl species encapsulated in the silica surface.
