The synthesis of organoselenium compounds continues to be a very active research area, due to their distinct chemical, physical and biological properties. Selenium-based methods have developed rapidly over the past few years and organoselenium chemistry has become a very powerful tool in the hands of organic chemist. This review describes the synthesis of organocatalysed bioactive selenium scaffolds especially including transition metal-catalysed diaryl selenide synthesis, Cu-catalysed selenium scaffolds, Pd-catalysed selenium scaffolds, asymmetric catalysis, Nickel catalysed selenium scaffolds and Rh-catalysed selenium scaffolds.

Keywords: Organocatalyst, Selenium Scaffolds, Asymmetric catalysis, Pd- Ni- Rh- Cu-catalyst, organoselenium, metal-catalysed.
