The review highlights the different advantages associated with organocatalytic transformations performed in continuous-flow systems and presents the reactions which have been successfully achieved to date. Particular focus is placed on the comparison between batch and flow applications in order to show the advantages and disadvantages and to demonstrate the great potential for applying organocatalysis as well as combined organo and photoredox catalyzed reactions in continuous flow.
