Imidazoles and their scaffold are an extraordinarily essential class of nitrogen bearing azole heterocyclic compounds. They have different place in wide area of organic synthesis, which can be utilized in a variety of applications in diverse fields including agriculture, medicine, polymer and various industries. Numerous methods for synthesis of imidazole derivatives are reported in last few decades. Existing conventional methods are more or less significant and confined due to its time-consuming reactions, high cost of catalyst, extensive methodologies, low yield rate or no reusability respectively. Overcoming to inefficient conventional methods, finding of novel and effective methods of imidazole synthesis becomes a crucial step in expanding dynamics of material chemistry. The synthesis and design of imidazole derivatives employing polymer-supported techniques will be discussed in this review. In addition, the utilization of polymer-supported organic, inorganic, hybrid, bio, and nanocatalysts in the synthesis process will be discussed.
