During the last few decades, transition metal catalysts, especially those on precious metals have proven to be efficient for a large number of applications. Due to its abundance, inexpensiveness, and environmentally benign nature, use of iron has increased significantly in the last two decades for synthetic transformation both in asymmetric synthesis and reaction methodology. This development encouraged to summarize the use of iron catalysis in organic synthesis, which includes cycloadditions, CC, CN bond formation, redox, and other reactions. Trifluoromethylated cyclopropanes are important compounds in drug delivery, though very few synthetic methods were reported for their preparation. This chapter has been divided into different sections based on the reaction type. It discusses that the iron‐catalyzed cross‐coupling reaction mechanism is versatile and varies with the nature of the coupling partners and based on the reaction condition. Sulfoxides are an important class of compounds since they were used for various ligand syntheses.
