Alkanethiol self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) have been used to influence selectivity and activity of supported metal catalysts.  Alkanethiol coatings on Pd/Al2O3 catalysts have been used to direct the hydrogenation selectivity of fatty acids and coated Pt/Al2O3 catalysts have been used to direct the selectivity of α,β-unsaturated aldehyde hydrogenation.
