In this review, recent progress made in the development of organocatalytic asymmetric halocyclization reactions that form heterocyclic compounds is described. New reactions and their mechanistic features are discussed in the context of an outline based on catalyst types, including biscinchona alkaloids, amino ureas, amino thioureas, amino thiocarbamates, chiral phosphoric acids, and trisimidazolines.
