Polylactides have received considerable attention in recent years due to their outstanding properties such as biocompatibility, biodegradability, and renewability. In particular, the studies on ring opening polymerization (ROP) of lactides in stereoselective manner catalyzed by chiral organometallic complexes have been regarded as one of the most significant fields in the synthesis of polylactides. The important advances in the ROP of lactides catalyzed by chiral organometallic complexes are reviewed in this article.

Key words: chiral organometallic complexes, catalysis, polymerization of lactides
