Perfluoro-tagged rhodium and ruthenium nanoparticles have been stabilized on highly fluorinated hybrid organic-inorganic silica gel. The method for preparation of these nanoparticles is highly reproducible and the new materials were robust, recoverable and active catalysts for arene hydrogenation under very mild conditions. © 2012 The Royal Society of Chemistry and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique.
