Several classes of chiral ligands have been largely used to increase the enantioselectivity of asymmetric Reformatsky reaction, however, chiral diamines and aminoalcohols ligands generally shown better results. Hence, this review describes the results using chiral ligands in the very important Reformatsky reaction.

Keywords: Reformatsky reaction, ligands, zinc, aminoalcohol, diol, diamines
