The use of ion exchange resins as catalysts in organic synthesis, such as esterification, alkylation, etherification, aldolization, isomerization and epoxidation was reviewed. Compared with inorganic catalysts, the ion exchange resin catalysts show excellent catalytic performance and readily recyclability. This article encompasses the progress made in current research and the application of ion exchange resins as catalyst is also summarized.

Key words: ion exchange resin, catalyst, organic synthesis, esterification, alkylation, phase transfer catalyst
