The C66(COOH)12 hexa-adduct has been successfully used as a building block to construct carboxylate bridged 3D networks with very homogeneous sub-1.8 nm ruthenium nanoparticles. The obtained nanostructures are active in nitrobenzene selective hydrogenation. Keep your distance: The synthesis of Ru nanoparticle assemblies with control of interparticle distances through covalent bonds with functional molecules is reported (see scheme). The obtained nanostructures are active in nitrobenzene selective hydrogenation.
