This review updates the field of asymmetric cascade palladium catalysis applied to the synthesis of chiral heterocycles since 2019. It illustrates how much a diversity of chiral palladium catalysts promote unprecedented asymmetric domino reactions of many types, allowing direct access to a wide variety of complex and densely functionalized chiral heterocyclic molecules.

Keywords: Palladium, heterocycles, cascade reactions, domino reactions, asymmetric metal catalysis, chirality.
