The newly-developed Meerwein-Ponndorf-Verley (MVP) type reagents using aluminum, boron and other metals for reduction of organic functional groups such as carbonyl and epoxy compounds have been surveyed. highlighted and reviewed in this account are the appearance of new MPV type reagents and their application to the selective reduction of organic functions. Finally, this account emphasizes the distinct contrast in the reducing characteristics existed between metal hydride reagents and MPV reagents, and compares their usefulness in organic synthesis.
