The preparation of Ru(0) nanoclusters stabilized by 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane and their characterization by a combination of complementary techniques are described. These new Ru(0) nanoclusters provide high activity and unprecedented reusability as a heterogeneous catalyst in the dehydrogenation of dimethylamine-borane.
