A new class of water–gas shift catalyst system that outperforms commercial catalysts under ultra-low-temperature real-gas conditions (T<160 °C) has been developed. The catalysts consist of [{RuCl2(CO)3}2] dissolved in an ionic liquid and dispersed on a porous support using the SILP approach. Its robustness and recyclability make it attractive for hydrogen production.
