The discovery of stable carbenes in the last decade of the 20th century has brought about extensive research on the chemistry of <I>N</I>-heterocyclic carbenes. Recently the powerful catalytic activity of <I>N</I>-heterocyclic carbenes has been demonstrated by new organocatalytic transformations. This review focuses on the asymmetric benzoin reactions catalyzed by <I>N</I>-heterocyclic carbenes. Chiral nucleophilic carbenes catalyze the benzoin condensation in good yields and exellent enantioselectivities.
