The desire for new synthetic methodologies for the rapid construction of enantiomerically pure substituted indole has been a fruitful driving force for chemical research in the last few years. This research line has produced a stunning array of enantioselective technologies either metal or organocatalyzed. This critical review documents the development of organocatalytic indole alkylation strategies, until the end of 2009 (127 references).
