1. Yusuke Makida, Ryoichi Kuwano, Hydrogenation, Thieme, 10.1055/sos-SD-223-00133, 261-283, 2017.03, From the viewpoint of atom economy and cost efficiency, hydrogenation is an ideal way to reduce various multiple bonds. In this chapter, some methods are described for the hydrogenation of alkenes, alkynes, carbonyls and related compounds, and (het)arenes using homogeneous metal–N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) catalysts. Moreover, this section also covers enantioselective hydrogenations in which chiral NHCs are employed as ligands..
