A cyclometalated iridium complex is shown to catalyse the transfer hydrogenation of various nitrogen heterocycles, including but not limited to quinolines, isoquinolines, indoles and pyridinium salts, in an aqueous solution of HCO2H/HCO2Na under mild conditions. The catalyst shows excellent functional-group compatibility and high turnover number (up to 7500), with catalyst loadings as low as 0.01 mol % being feasible.

Cyclometallated Cp*Ir(N^C)Cl complexes derived from N-aryl ketimines are highly active catalysts for the reduction of N-heterocycles under ambient conditions and 1 atm H2 pressure. The reaction tolerates a broad range of other potentially reducible functionalities and does not require the use of specialised equipment, additives or purified solvent.

An efficient iridium-catalyzed asymmetric hydrogenation of the fluorinated isoquinoline derivatives has been successfully developed for the synthesis of chiral fluorinated tetrahydroisoquinoline derivatives with up to 93% ee. This methodology features the use of a hydrochloride salt as well as a catalytic amount of halogenated hydantoin which were vital for the reactivity, enantioselectivity, and inhibition of the hydrodefluorination pathway.

Reductive amination of various ketones and aldehydes by transfer hydrogenation under aqueous conditions has been developed, by using cyclometallated iridium complexes as catalysts and formate as hydrogen source. The pH value of the solution is shown to be critical for a high catalytic chemoselectivity and activity, with the best pH value being 4.8.

New Ir-NHC complexes based on different heterocyclic moieties like imidazole, benzimidazole and imidazolidine are presented and tested in transfer hydrogenation catalysis. A broad range of steric and electronic properties of NHC ligands is covered to give an idea for catalyst design from the experimental point of view.
