Title
Colloidal Ru, Co and Fe-nanoparticles. Synthesis and application as nanocatalysts in the Fischer–Tropsch process
Abstract

In this review, the current state of the art in the synthesis of soluble-Ru, Co and Fe-nanoparticles stabilised by organic molecules is described. Polymers are widely applied for the synthesis of soluble-Ru, Co and Fe-NPs, whereas the application of surfactants, ionic liquids and small molecules is much more limited.The recent applications of soluble-metal NPs as catalysts in the Fischer–Tropsch synthesis are described. The application of soluble-metal nanocatalysts in the Fischer–Tropsch reaction using water, ionic liquids and high boiling point organic solvents is reviewed showing that higher activities and selectivities than those obtained using conventional supported catalysts can be achieved.
