Transition metal complexes-catalyzed homogeneous asymmetric hydrogenation is an important method for the synthesis of chiral compounds. At present, it is mainly focused on precious transition metal catalytic systems, such as ruthenium, rhodium, iridium and palladium. However, they are suffered from the difficulties of limited resource, high cost and environmental contamination. Therefore, it is important and necessary to develop catalytic systems based on cheap, non-toxic or low toxic, environmentally friendly and earth-abundant iron, cobalt, nickel, copper transition metal, which are in accordance with the requirements and research trend of the sustainable development of modern chemistry. The recent progress of nickel-catalyzed homogeneous asymmetric hydrogenation of prochiral unsaturated compounds containing carbon oxygen double bond (C=O), carbon carbon double bond (C=C) and carbon nitrogen double bond (C=N) is reviewed, and some breakthroughs and considerable research results achieved are introduced. In addition, the advantages and disadvantages of different types of substrates in nickel catalyst system are analyzed, and the future research direction is prospected.
