For decades, the pursuit of efficient and simple methods to achieve the enantioselective synthesis of target products has been a hot field in chemistry. Traditional Lewis acid catalysis and transition-metal-catalyzed asymmetric synthesis (including cross-coupling reactions, carbene chemistry, hydrogenation reduction, etc.) have been considered and achieved remarkable results. Since 2000, research on the catalytic construction of central chiral and axial chiral compounds by small organic molecules has emerged and attracted much attention. In addition, the construction of chiral centers by new free radical reactions, developed in recent years, and catalytic asymmetric dearomatization reactions have also experienced notable progress.
In the context of the vigorous development of the field of asymmetric synthesis, the journal Symmetry has set up a Special Issue called “Asymmetric Catalysis: Topics and Advances”, with the aim of collecting excellent papers in the fields of central chiral and axial chiral compound synthesis catalyzed by small organic molecules, Lewis acid catalysis, transition-metal-catalyzed asymmetric synthesis, asymmetric dearomatization, and asymmetric radical reactions. We warmly welcome chemists to publish their work in Symmetry.
Please kindly note that all submitted papers should be within the scope of the journal where symmetry, or the deliberate lack of symmetry, is present.

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.
