A colloidal ruthenium catalyst stabilized by silica was prepared through microemulsion processing. Ruthenium colloids with particle size about 4 nm are highly dispersed in silica. The selective hydrogenation of benzene to cyclohexene was studied over the catalyst. Much higher activity and selectivity was obtained compared with its supported counterparts.
