Abstract

Catalytic hydrogenative coupling of carbonyls with π-unsaturated compounds employing hydrogen gas or H donors as terminal reductants is an attractive method for C–C bond formation. Herein, we give a brief review on its development and highlight recent advances on the use of base metal catalysts, such as nickel and iron.
