In recent years, carbon nanotubes (CNTs), including N-doped ones (N-CNTs), have received significant attention as supports for the construction of heterogeneous catalysts. In this work, we summarize our progress in the application of (N)-CNTs for immobilization of anionic metal-oxygen clusters or polyoxometalates (POMs) and use of (N)-CNTs-supported POM as catalysts for liquidphase selective oxidation of organic compounds with the green oxidant–aqueous hydrogen peroxide. We discuss here the main factors, which favor adsorption of POMs on (N)-CNTs and ensure a quasi-molecular dispersion of POM on the surface and their strong attachment to the support. The effects of the POM nature, N-doping of CNTs, acid additives, and other factors on the POM immobilization process and catalytic activity/selectivity of the (N)-CNTs-immobilized POMs are analyzed. Particular attention is drawn to the critical issue of the catalyst stability and reusability. The scope and limitations of the POM/(N)-CNTs catalysts in H2O2-based selective oxidations are discussed.
