     Catalytic activity of nano-flake ZnO for synthesis of quinoline derivatives and their related polyheterocycles under solvent-free conditions has been studied. Nano-flake ZnO has been successfully synthesized by conventional heating of a solution approach using ZnOAc.2H2O and Urea. This method is simple, cost-effective, and environmentally benign and the catalyst can be reused for several times.
