Cyclopropylamines are important synthetic intermediates and their enantiopure forms are also useful as chiral resolving agents. The present review outlines the recent developments on the asymmetric synthesis of cyclopropylamine derivatives. The transformations based on carbene or carbenoid species, asymmetric catalysis, ylide formation, Simmons-Smith, Kulinkovich and Mitsunobu reaction, conjugate addition, Favorskii-type rearrangement and intramolecular cyclopropanations are elaborated.
