This thesis describes two new phase-transfer catalysed processes, in which asymmetry is mediated via ion-pairing with a chiral cation. In the first chapter, an enantioselective method for N functionalization of pyrroles is described and a phase-transfer catalysed approach to axial chirality via a cation-directed SNAr reaction is discussed in Chapters 3, 4 and 5.
