The "Borrowing Hydrogen" reaction between alcohols and amines is a green route for accessing new amines.The concept of" Borrowing Hydrogen "reaction,the origin,and important developments,as well as future directions for "Borrowing Hydrogen" reaction of alcohols and amines by homogeneous catalysis are described in the paper.

Key words: Alcohol, Amine, Dehydrogenation, Organometallics, Asymmetric catalysis
