Ionic Liquids are becoming increasingly attractive as alternative media for organic synthesis. Strategies such as the use of biocatalysts, chiral ionic liquids, chiral reagent and/or catalysts, have been employed to achieve asymmetric transformations in ionic liquids. The focus of this review is on the developments made in asymmetric catalysis using organometallic and organocatalysts in ionic liquids.
