Raney-nickel catalysts templated as per Izumi, 1) have been used for the asymmetric hydrogenation of 2-methylpyridine to (d)-2-methylpiperidine. This represents the first example of asymmetric hydrogenation of an aromatic heterocycle and may offer a new synthetic route to biologically active compounds.
