Something in the water: A hundred-fold substrate selectivity is observed in the competitive chemoselective hydrogenation of seven α,β-unsaturated aldehydes (C4–C10) in water with palladium nanoparticles stabilized by sodium dodecyl sulfonate as a surfactant. The medium makes the longer lipophilic substrates hundreds of times more reactive than the shorter more hydrophilic ones, whereas in an organic medium almost no difference is observed.
