Abstract: Stable, well dispersed and agglomeration free Ru metal doped TiO2 nanoparticles were produced by a sol gel method (with and without ionic liquid reaction medium). Such unique physiochemical properties of Ru-TiO2-IL catalyst were utilized as catalysts for CO2 hydrogenation reaction in task specific ionic liquid medium. Low catalysts loading, moisture/air stability, high selectivity, easy catalyst synthesis protocol as well as stress-free reaction condition along with 5 times catalysts recycling are the major outcomes of the proposed report.
