This chapter is an overview of organic reactions carried out inside the cavity of cucurbiturils and at their carbonylated rims. The macrocycles are used to promote or inhibit reactions by bringing reactants together or keeping them apart, and by stabilizing or destabilizing reactants and transition states of rate-determining steps. Redox processes, isomerizations, [2+2], [3+2], [4+2] and [4+4] cycloadditions, as well as various nucleophilic additions, are among the reactions discussed in this chapter.
