An efficient, reproducible process for the solvothermal synthesis of Ru/gamma-Al(2)O(3) nanocatalysts has been developed. This synthesis employs a low boiling point alcohol acting as solvent and reducing agent. The reaction is performed in autoclave under nitrogen overpressure, by heating the solution of metal precursor and stabilizing agent in the presence of the support. These systems show very promising performances, also with an application perspective, in the selective hydrogenation of phenol to cyclohexanone carried out at 160 A degrees C under 5 MPa of hydrogen: a selectivity to cyclohexanone as high as 83% has been reached at a phenol conversion value of 88%.
