This chapter summarizes the recent work (published after 2000) of enantioseletive cycloadditions catalyzed by chiral Lewis acids and chiral transition metal complexes. The cycloaddition is categorized as [4+2], [5+2], [2+2], [2+2+2], [3+2], and [4+3] cycloadditions. These reactions provide efficient protocols for the construction of various chiral cyclic skeletons, which include central, axial, planar, and helical chiralities.
