Catalytic asymmetric synthesis is explained as promoting the exclusive achievement of one enantiomer over another with the help of sub-stoichiometric amounts of a proper catalyst. Chemists mostly from Europe, but also China, the US, and India, offer a snapshot of the current methods, applications, and techniques. Among their topics are recyclable organocatalysts in asymmetric reactions, the synthesis of chiral catalysts supported on organic polymers, asymmetric catalytic synthesis in supercritical fluids, microwave-assisted transition metal-catalyzed asymmetric synthesis, silicate-mediated stereoselective reactions catalyzed by chiral Lewis bases, and stereoselective nitrogen heterocycle synthesis mediated by chiral metal catalysts.
