The catalytic nature of self-assembled metal-organic polyhedra gives an entirely new dimension to the reactivity and properties of molecules within a well-defined confined space. Encapsulation of a range of guests brings about not only host-guest interactions but also gives rise to unusual reactivities with selectivity and stabilization of various reactive intermediates. This review briefly covers the synthesis of self-assembled metal-organic polyhedra and elaborates their influence in different chemical reactions as well as in the stabilization of unstable chemical species.
