Organic synthesis with lanthanides has experienced enormous growth in the last ten years. Numerous synthetic reactions have been explored by the use of lanthanide reagents, and some of these have become indispensable in modern organic synthesis. This work describes the scope and potential of these reagents, addressing this rapidly growing area from a practical point of view. Synthetically useful and novel organic transformations are summarized, with an emphasis on the characteristic properties of lanthanide reagents. Coverage includes the use of lanthanide metals, the powerful divalent reagents such as samarium (II) iodide, the key trivalent reagents and their particular role as catalysts in selective reductions and cycloadditions, and the tetravalent lanthanides as oxidants.
