Organocatalysis is a new strategy for catalysis in which purely organic catalysts are employed. With numerous spectacular developments, it has won its place within the field of organic chemistry. Here we describe the development of a novel concept, namely Asymmetric Counteranion Directed Catalysis (ACDC). This new strategy has been originally developed within the area of organocatalysis but in addition has found interesting utility in transition metal catalysis.
