This perspective article focuses its attention on the most recent advances in hydrodefluorination processes catalyzed by late transition metal complexes, a field that has been a matter of increasing interest during the past decade. The evolution of catalytic hydrodefluorination is treated by giving precise information on the nature of the catalysts, reductants and fluoroorganic substrates that have been used until now. An overview of the mechanistic studies that have been performed so far is also given. (Chemical Equation Presented)
