This paper reviews various types of heterogeneous acid-base catalysts for fragrances preparation. Catalytic activities of the various types of heterogeneous acid and base catalysts in fragrances preparation, i.e. non-zeolitic, zeolitic, and mesoporous molecular sieves, have been reported. Generally, heterogeneous acid cata-lysts are more commonly used in fragrance synthesis as compared to heterogeneous base catalysts. Heteropoly acids and hydrotalcites type catalysts are widely used as heterogeneous acid and base catalysts, respectively.
