An optimum reaction path for CO activation is an important issue in the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis for the production of liquid hydrocarbons from syngas. In the present theoretical study, we show that the CO activation on open Ru and Co surfaces consisting of active six-fold sites is initiated through the carbide mechanism instead of the hydrogen assisted pathway.
