This review article aimed to discuss the remarkable role of silicotungstic acid as an efficient catalyst in a variety of organic reactions like synthesis of natural products or biologically potent organic scaffolds or its precursors which have wide ranging pharmaceutical and industrial implementations. These reactions were carried out either in presence of solvent or under solvent-free condition. Moreover, miscellaneous solid surfaces supported silicotungstic acid had a wide array of potential applications. The present study compiled some of these assorted reactions and makes a contrast of different kinds of reactions.
