Over the last decade, several excellent enantioselective total syntheses of important alkaloids using asymmetric reactions mediated by chiral secondary amine organocatalysts as a key step have been accomplished. This perspective article examines the full strategies of these alkaloid syntheses, especially the application of the organocatalytic reaction to construct the alkaloid scaffolds.
