In this research work, we have synthesized a ruthenium sulfide catalyst with catalytic activity higher than HDS industrial catalysts using a new ruthenium precursor. In agreement to the results obtained, the high hydrogen content during the activation has an important effect over the catalytic activity in HDS of DBT.
