Recent progress in the Lewis acid catalysis of organic reactions by ruthenium complexes. The review focuses on reactions in which coordinatively unsaturated ruthenium species function as conventional Lewis acids, rather than those involving oxidation or reduction, such as in hydrogenations. Particular emphasis is placed on the development of asymmetric catalysts.

Keywords: ene-type reactions, Areneruthenium Complexes, catalytic reactions, Diels-Alder reaction, enantioselectivity
