Hydrogenation of prochiral ketones using chiral transition-metal catalysts represents the cleanest way to access enantiomerically enriched secondary alcohols, which are important building blocks in fine chemicals synthesis. Despite excellent activity, selectivity and compatibility of metal complexes with variety of functional groups, no universal catalysts exist. In this article we summarize the advances in catalyst systems for the asymmetric homogenous and heterogenous hydrogenation of ketones… 
The mechanism of enantioselective ketone reduction with Noyori and Noyori-Ikariya bifunctional catalysts.
TLDR
Analysis presented herein expands the concept of "metal-ligand cooperation", redefines the term "cooperative ligand" and introduces "H(-)/H(+) outer-sphere hydrogenation" as a novel paradigm in outer- Spheres hydrogenation.
Highly Enantioselective Transfer Hydrogenation of Prochiral Ketones Using Ru(II)‐Chitosan Catalyst in Aqueous Media
Unprecedentedly high enantioselectivities are obtained in the transfer hydrogenation of prochiral ketones catalyzed by a Ru complex formed in situ with chitosan chiral ligand. This biocompatible,
Chiral surfactant-type catalyst: enantioselective reduction of long-chain aliphatic ketoesters in water.
TLDR
The CH/π interaction and the strong hydrophobic interaction of long aliphatic chains between the catalyst and the substrate in the metallomicelle core played a key role in the catalytic transition state.
Enantioselective hydrogenation of dialkyl ketones
Chiral catalyst development is a key to asymmetric catalysis research. The enantioselectivity of a chiral catalyst relies on its ability to distinguish the prochiral centres or faces of substrates,

TLDR
This tutorial review summarizes recent successes in replacing expensive and toxic ruthenium in these catalysts with "greener" iron substitutes including my lab's recent progress using iron complexes containing readily-prepared tetradentate ligands to enlighten chemists interested in homogeneous catalysis and asymmetric synthesis.
Asymmetric transfer hydrogenation of ketones with bifunctional transition metal-based molecular catalysts.
TLDR
The chiral bifunctional molecular catalyst promoted reduction is now realized to be a powerful tool to access chiral compounds in organic synthetic procedures in both academia and industry.

TLDR
A concerted six-membered transition state is proposed to be the origin of the high reactivity of η6-arene/TsDPEN–Ru and MsDPEN-Cp*Ir catalysts effect the asymmetric reaction under slightly acidic conditions.
