Hydrogenation of nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) is an important research topic in the field of chemical modification of unsaturated polymers. This review provides an overview of the fundamental data, challenges, and recent advances in the research area of homogeneous hydrogenation of NBR. Besides NBR and its hydrogenation product HNBR, some other important elastomers such as styrene butadiene rubber (SBR), polybutadiene rubber (BR), polystyrene-b-polybutadiene-b-polystyrene (SBS block copolymer…
