During the last decade, the combination of different metal- and bio-catalyzed organic reactions in aqueous media has permitted the flourishing of a variety of one-pot asymmetric multi-catalytic reactions devoted to the construction of enantiopure and high added-value chemicals under mild reaction conditions (usually room temperature) and in the presence of air. Herein, a comprehensive account of the state-of-the-art in the development of catalytic networks by combining metallic and biological catalysts in aqueous media (the natural environment of enzymes) is presented. Among others, the combination of metal-catalyzed isomerizations, cycloadditions, hydrations, olefin metathesis, oxidations, C-C cross-coupling and hydrogenation reactions, with several biocatalyzed transformations of organic groups (enzymatic reduction, epoxidation, halogenation or ester hydrolysis), are discussed.
