Supported ruthenium carbido-cluster catalysts ([Ru6C(CO)16Me](-)/oxide) selectively produced methanol, dimethyl ether, and formaldehyde in CO-H2, in contrast to the dominant formation of methane and hydrocarbons on supported ruthenium cluster catalysts ([Ru6(CO)18](2-)/oxide) without the interstitial carbon and conventional metallic Ru catalysts.
