Bioinspired asymmetric epoxidation of olefins with green oxidant hydrogen peroxide attracted much research interest in recent years. A variety of catalyst systems based on transition metal complexes has emerged, providing useful techniques to obtain chiral epoxides from different classes of olefins. In this chapter, we discuss the major advances in the field, with focus on ligands design, catalyst activity, enantioselectivity, and substrate scope of asymmetric epoxidations, as well as some mechanistic aspects of these reactions
