Supported ionic liquids have attracted increasing attentions in the area of organic synthesis due to their significant properties including good chemical and thermal stability, wide liquid temperature range, considerable ionic conductivity, nonflammability, and high surface area with a remarkable level of catalytic performance. Moreover, due to their heterogeneous properties, they have the attractive features of easy separation and recyclability. This review covers recent studies on the applications of supported ILs as green catalysts for the traditional reagents in catalytic organic synthesis such as condensation reaction, oxidation, coupling reactions as well as some other reactions. The adaptabilities of supported ILs in these reactions are predicted as a solution to the problems of conventional chemical processes and to become a powerful method in organic synthesis.
