Organoselenium chemistry is now become an important tool in synthetic and medicinal chemistry. Organoselenium reagents are more commonly known as electrophiles but there are few organic transformations where they act as nucleophiles. These reagents have been successfully employed to achieve number of synthetically important transformations such as oxyselenenylations, selenocyclization and selenoxide eliminations etc. In past two decades, another episode of their success is introduced as they have developed as potential catalysts in organic synthesis. Various selenium-catalyzed approaches such as oxidation, reduction, cyclization, rearrangement and stereoselective reactions have been successfully investigated. During these reactions, a number of organic and inorganic oxidants have been employed to regenerate different active catalytic species in situ. In this review article, recently developed selenium-catalyzed reactions are covered including stereoselective reactions.
