Abstract: Basic characteristics of heteropolyacids as green
catalysts are overviewed, focusing on the various reaction fields in
which the heteropolyacid catalysts function as acid and oxidation catalysts,
and then two industrial processes which were made very green by the
use of heteropolyacid catalysts in liquid biphase systems are described.
In this context an interesting new reaction field formed at the interfacial
layer of a solid heteropolyacid and liquid has also been reported.
