Recently, the asymmetric reduction of imines catalyzed by Lewis-basic organocatalyst has been received much attention as the cheap hydrogen source and the simple post treatment. Based on the different functional groups of organocatalysts, this paper introduced formamide, pyridine amide, sulfonamide, supported and other Lewis basic organocatalysts. The structural characteristics, catalytic activity and mechanism of the Lewis-basic organocatalysts were summarized.

Key words: imine, Lewis-base, organocatalyst, asymmetric reduction
