Recent advances in the development of heterogeneous catalytic hydrogenation reactions are reviewed. The work includes two chapters, highlighting the major types of commercially available solid hydrogenation catalysts and the discussion of recent results related to the hydrogenation of major functional group types. Efforts have also been made to summarize contemporary results in microwave- and ultrasound-assisted hydrogenations.

Keywords: Metal catalysts, catalytic hydrogenation, heterogeneous, functional groups, synthesis, microwave, ultrasound, solid metal catalysts, green chemistry, solid catalysts
