Catalytic asymmetric hydrogenation of heteroaromatics had been a formidable issue in organic synthesis. However, the catalytic asymmetric hydrogenation has remarkably progressed during the past decade. This review surveys the recent progress of the asymmetric hydrogenation of 5-membered heteroaromatics, indoles, pyrroles, furans, and benzofurans.
