Phosphorus-containing molecules have been widely used as catalysts in enantioselective transformations. The ability of phosphorus-containing molecules such as phosphines or phosphoramidites to coordinate transition metals make them ideal ligands for metal-catalyzed reactions. On the other hand, chiral phosphoric acids and their derivatives, as well as phosphines, have also been used in the absence of metals, leading to highly efficient organocatalyzed transformations.
This Special Issue covers the recent developments in asymmetric catalytic reactions mediated by chiral phosphorus-containing molecules. Contributions dealing with the development of novel catalysts or new enantioselective transformations, as well as review articles summarizing the most relevant advances and future development in this area are welcome. We invite you to contribute to this Special Issue on the recent advances and perspectives on the use of phosphorus-containing organocatalysts and chiral ligands in asymmetric catalysis.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Symmetry is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
