Abstract

Hydrogen transfer reduction processes are attracting increasing interest from synthetic chemists in view of their operational simplicity and high selectivity. In this tutorial review the most significant advances recently achieved in the stereoselective reduction of unsaturated organic compounds catalyzed by homogeneous transition metal complexes are critically reviewed. A sharp growth of the synthetic applications of this technique in the synthesis of fine chemicals is predictable as the use of transition metal catalyzed reactions will become more familiar to synthetic chemists.
