Ruthenium(III) chloride hydrate is used as a starting material in ruthenium chemistry. It acts as a precursor to many ruthenium compounds, which finds application as catalysts in asymmetric hydrogenation and alkene metathesis. It serves as a catalyst in the preparation of 2-ethyl-3-methylquinolines from primary aromatic amines and triallylamine. Further, it is used in the preparation of nanoparticulate ruthenium-aluminum oxyhydroxide catalyst for the efficient dehydrogenation of arylmethyl alcohols to the corresponding aldehydes.
