    Summary
    In situ high-pressure NMR spectroscopy of the hydrogenation of benzene to give cyclohexane, catalysed by the cluster cation [(η6-C6H6)(η6-C6Me6)2Ru33-O)(μ2-OH)(μ2-H)2]+2, supports a mechanism involving a supramolecular host-guest complex of the substrate molecule in the hydrophobic pocket of the intact cluster molecule.
