The gas phase hydrogenation of o-xylene on supported ruthenium catalysts has been studied. Metal dispersity, acidity of the support and carbonaceous residues modified the stereoselectivity of Ru. Following the “rollover” model for the reaction, the results are explained in terms of the residence time of the reactive species on the metal surface.
