Haloperoxidases are very active catalysts for the in situ generation of electrophilic halide species for oxidative halogenation reactions. In the synthetic community, these catalysts, however, are not widely used. The aim of this mini-review is to critically summarise the current state-of-the-art of haloperoxidase catalysis for organic synthesis. We hope that the excellent catalytic performance of these catalysts will trigger more chemists to consider them in their synthesis planning.
