By multiscale modeling it is found that in Fischer-Tropsch synthesis by Ruthenium the dominant reaction pathway towards hydrocarbons involves CO dissociation followed by CH+CH coupling. In the alternative mechanism involving CO insertion into growing chains prior to C-O cleavage, methane will be the dominant reaction product.
