This review collects for the first time enantioselective one-pot processes promoted by green chiral zinc catalysts. It illustrates how much these cheap, non-toxic and environmentally benign catalysts allow unprecedented asymmetric domino and tandem reactions of many types to be achieved, allowing direct access to a wide variety of very complex chiral molecules.

Keywords: Asymmetric one-pot reactions, asymmetric domino reactions, asymmetric tandem reactions, asymmetric zinc catalysis, metal catalysis, chirality.
