Nitrogen containing heterocyclic compounds has acquired their remarkable and distinct place in the wide area of organic synthesis due to the broad range of applications. Among them, quinoline motifs have attracted researchers in the synthetic chemistry because of its presence in the large number of pharmacologically active compounds. Different methods for synthesis of quinoline derivatives are reported, among them the Friedlander synthesis have provided comparatively more efficient approach. Many of the reported conventional Friedlander methodologies have some problems such as difficult product isolation procedures, poor yields and use of expensive catalysts, etc. Recently, polymer or solid supported synthetic approaches have attracted the attention of researchers because of their easy execution, greater selectivity, increased product yields, simple work-up procedures, recoverability and reusability of the catalysts. In consideration with the advantages of polymer supported synthetic strategies, the proposed review covers the role of polymers in the Friedlander synthesis; which may use polymers of organic, inorganic or hybrid in nature and of nanolevel as well.
