Over the last decade, polyoxometalates (POMs) have attracted extensive attention as homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts used for organic transformation. The most important feature of POMs is the possibility of the catalyst design at atomic/molecular levels. They could also be used as multifunctional catalysts, based on different metal atoms and heteroatoms in their structure, counter cations, and second structures. In this review, application of the Keplerate‐type giant nanoporous isopolyoxomolybdate (NH4)42[MoVI72MoV60O372‐(CH3COO)30(H2O)72], denoted {Mo132} was reviewed in the synthesis of many organic reactions as a heterogeneous solid acid catalyst, which significantly improved the synthesis condition of various organic reactions in the recent years from 2013 to 2019.
