This review focuses on the design of catalytic systems based on cyclodextrins via the molecular imprinting technique. The application of CD in the molecular imprinting method for the development of selective macromolecular receptors is discussed and the main features of the CD-based macromolecular receptors synthesized by the imprinting method are considered. A number of catalytic applications of such materials in Wacker-oxidation, aldehyde hydrogenation and oxidative coupling are presented.
Keywords: Cyclodextrins, molecular imprinting, molecular recogniotion, hereogeneous, homogeneous catalysis, Wacker-oxidation, oxidative, cross-coupling, hydrogenation
