This chapter covers the literature since the advent, in the 21st century, of total syntheses of alkaloids using enantio- or diastereoselective organocatalytic reactions to construct the alkaloid scaffolds. The details of these alkaloid syntheses are described separately for each basic skeleton, including indole, indoline, oxindole, and piperidine alkaloids.
