Heteropolyacids, their salts and polyoxometalateshave been used as catalysts in wide range of organic reactions such as multi components, oxidation, reductions, electrochemical and photochemical reactions. There have been tremendous and continued efforts to modify the catalytic performance of heteropoly acids such as supporting them on MCM, silica gel, etc. In this review, we have attempted to bring some of new applications of heteropolyacids in organic reactions and recent approaches on modifying them, into focus.

Keywords: Heteropolyacids, Supported heteropoly acids, Heterogenous catalysis, Organic synthesis
