The interaction between propylene and H2O on Ru-Co/SiO2-catalyst was studied. It was determinedthat the process of the water addition to olefin molecule is carried out with n-propanol, i-propanol andacetone formation. For clarification of the adsorption mechanism of propylene on Ru-Co-clusters the quantum-chemical calculation of interaction between it and Ru-Co, Ru-Ru, Co-Co clusters were carried out.
