This review highlights a number of recent developments in the field of main group enantioselective catalysis. Many essential transformations can be effected catalytically such as hydrosilylation, hydroamination and hydrogenation reactions, amongst others, in an asymmetric fashion using earth abundant s- and p-block elements such as calcium, strontium, boron and aluminum. Recent work in this area has shown that these systems are not only active in catalysis but may also have the potential to compete with transition metal based systems with the reduced cost and toxicity sometimes associated with main group chemistry.
