Abstract: Since the discoveries of facile methodologies for the synthesis of triarylcorroles and the corresponding metal complexes, metallocorroles have attracted the interest of chemists immensely because of their ability to catalyze diverse reactions. The huge number of studies performed during the last decade on metallocorrole catalyzed reactions has led to several important catalytic systems encompassing oxidation catalysis, reduction catalysis, group transfer catalysis, etc. The aim of the present chapter is to provide a comprehensive account on the catalytic properties of metallocorroles with an emphasis on recent advances in the area and future directions.
