Ionic Liquids are becoming increasingly attractive as alternative media for organic synthesis. Strategies such as the use of biocatalysts, chiral ionic liquids, chiral reagent and/or catalysts, have been employed to achieve asymmetric transformations in ionic liquids. The focus of this review is on the developments made in asymmetric catalysis using organometallic and organocatalysts in ionic liquids.

Keywords: Catalytic asymmetric hydrogenation, Friedel-Crafts Reaction, Osmium-catalyzed asymmetric dihydroxylation, olefins, Fluorination
