This paper focuses on the latest developments in asymmetric epoxidation of electron-deficient olefins since the review by Porter and Skidmore on chiral ligand-metal peroxide systems, polyamino acid catalysed and organocatalysed epoxidations. Particular attention has been paid to the most recent advances using chiral pyrrolidines as organocatalysts.
