This review highlights the enantioselective radical cyclization reactions catalyzed by chiral Lewis acid as well as organocatalyst. The results of the radical cyclization controlled by chiral Al, Ti, Mg, Yb and Zn reagents, the oxidative cyclization using chiral amine, the chiral complexing agent-catalyzed reductive cyclization, transfer of chirality in radical cyclization, and so on are summarized.
