N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC)-based organocatalysis has been widely used for unconventional access to various target molecules. The use of chiral NHCs in the process results in the enantioselective synthesis of various heterocycles. The underlying principle of many of the NHC-catalyzed reactions is the remarkable ability of NHCs to reverse the normal mode of reactivity of aldehydes (umpolung). NHCs can catalyze transformations proceeding via the umpolung or nonumpolung mode for the synthesis of various functionalized molecules. The recent advances in the application of NHCs for the synthesis of various heterocyclic compounds are highlighted in this chapter. © 2020 Elsevier Ltd
