The reduction of imino bonds produces highly valuable amine products of significance in a range of industries. The development of new systems for their production relies on knowledge of the mechanisms for these catalytic processes. While the mechanisms have been widely studied for metal catalysed asymmetric hydrogenation there is much less work for the emerging area of metal−Brønsted acid cooperative catalysis. Chapter 1 describes the recent developments in both metal catalysed and organocatalysed asymmetric reduction of imines with an emphasis on the mechanistic details. This is followed by the mechanistic studies carried out for the reduction of imino bonds.
