This review will focus on the recent applications of chiral Schiff base in asymmetric catalysis. The developments in the preparation and use of chiral Schiff base in a variety of asymmetric transformations will be covered. Some remarkable characteristics and catalytic mechanisms of these reactions will be mentioned and the limitations of some asymmetric reactions will be also discussed.
