The binding properties of cyclodextrins stimulated the interest of many chemists. Cyclodextrins are popular candidates for catalytic reactions, and these are reviewed in this paper. The focus is mainly on the literature on native and modified cyclodextrins as non-metal containing catalysts, after year 1989, since before that year the literature on cyclodextrins as catalysts is very well covered by other comprehensive reviews [1]. This review is structured according to cyclodextrin catalysts, for each catalyst the types of reactions they have been involved in are chronologically summarized.

Keywords: Organocatalysis, cyclodextrins, artificial enzyme, rate acceleration, biomimic
