    A common use for a /32 is for route advertisements. Let's say you have an intranet with partners. Your partners need to be able to access specific applications in your network. Instead of advertising your entire network, you just advertise specific prefixes for the servers that they need to reach.

    A /32 with a default gateway won't work. It would work with a default route, but not a default gateway.

    We use /32 sometimes for static routes. For example, you have a VPN that provides secure connectivity for various sites to reach a server at a main site. If there is only 1 server that you want to reach on the other end of the VPN, then you can use a /32 to direct traffic from other parts of your network towards the device terminating the VPN tunnel.

    I use /32 for loop-backs, but I'm sure later on down the Cisco track I'll use them for something else.
