Confined nanospaces in which reactions can take place, have been created by various approaches such as molecular capsules, zeolites and micelles. In this tutorial review we focus on the application of self-assembled nanocapsules with well-defined cavities as nanoreactors for organic and metal catalysed transformations. The self-assembly of nanocapsules based on noncovalent bonds such as hydrogen bonds and metal-ligand interactions is discussed to introduce the properties of the building blocks and capsules thereof. We will elaborate on the encapsulation effects that can be expected when reactions are carried out in a capsule-protected environment. Subsequently, literature examples will be described in which self-assembled nanocapsules are applied as nanoreactors, for various types of organic and metal catalysed reactions.
