Base-metal catalysis, especially with non-noble-metal pincer-type catalysts, is increasingly used in organic synthesis and thus becoming more and more important for organometallic chemistry. After ruthenium-, iridium- and iron-based pincer-type complexes became established as state-of-the-art catalysts for (de)hydrogenation reactions in the past decade, manganese complexes have most recently been successfully applied in related transformations. Specifically, this microreview covers their recent progress in (de)hydrogenation and transfer (de)hydrogenation as well as in C–C and C–X bond-forming reactions.
