Progress in the field of enantioselective electrophilic fluorination during the past eighteen years resulting from fascinating research conducted by twelve international groups is reviewed. Two complementary strategies for the synthesis of enantiopure fluorine-containing molecules currently define state-of-the-art in this area. The use of chiral, non-racemic fluorinating agents is the most general approach while catalytic methods using either transition-metal catalysts or organocatalysts apply to specific substrates.
