Asymmetric heterogeneous catalysis is a vivid branch of catalysis, remaining, however, largely a domain of organic chemists. The view towards asymmetric heterogeneous catalysis adopted in this review is mainly from catalytic science and engineering. Not only reaction mechanisms, but also catalytic properties, kinetic regularities, as well as chemical engineering aspects, are covered with the main focus on recent developments.
