I would be so grateful if you can let me know which of the following sentences is correct:

1: "For a detailed review of the most related works and a comparison between them "

2: "For detailed review of the most related works and comparison between them "

Thanks in advance.

Neither seems clear, largely because as it is 'most related' doesn't seem to mean anything.

'For a detailed review of the works most related to the subject and a comparison between them…'might work, if that's what you mean.

'For a detailed review of the works and a comparison between them…'would be fine by itself.

'For detailed review of the works and comparison between them…' lacks clarity

'For detailed reviews of the works and comparisons/ a comparison between them…' would be better.

Either could be correct, they just mean slightly different things.

The first refers to a single review:

For a detailed review of the most related works and a comparison between them, read A.N.Other's monograph My Detailed Review of Most Related Works.

The second refers to a collection or ongoing series of separate reviews:

For detailed review of the most related works and comparison between them, read The Journal of Detailed Reviews, with more of the most related works covered every week.

or possibly

For detailed review of the most related works and comparison between them, attend my weekly seminars on Tuesday at 4pm.

Note that detailed review and comparison are both singular in the second case because they're talking about the act of performing a review or comparison, so these acts are ongoing.
