BINOL and its derivatives as a class of important and attractive compounds have been
widely used in asymmetric synthesis. They could not only play as a part of chiral ligands, but also
work well as organocatalysts. This review mainly focused on the recent progress in BINOL mediated
asymmetric reactions including C-C bond forming reactions and C-hetero bond forming reactions.
