Quinoline, molecular formula C9H7N, it is a heterocyclic aromatic organic compound. It has double-ring structure that consists of a benzene ring with a pyridine at two adjacent carbon atoms. It has property of being less soluble in cold water but also dissolves well in hot water and several other organic solvents. Based on the supportive properties quinoline and its derivatives have many applications of being useful in diverse applications, such as quinine, an alkaloid present in plants. Quinoline and isoquinoline are alkaloids which are obtained from the natural sources that show the remarkable and biological activities and relatively simple structure. They are also widely employed for production of specialty chemicals commonly used as a precursor to 8-hydroxyquinoline, which is a precursor to pesticides and a multipurpose chelating agent. Quinoline is also beneficial for mobility in an atmosphere for avoiding the water contamination. The oxidation of quinoline results in formation of quinolinic acid, which is a precursor to the herbicide, also known as “Assert.” The derivatives of quinoline displays multiple therapeutic activities such as antimalarial, anti-inflammatory, anti-asthmatic, anti-bacterial, anti-hypertensive, anti-cancer, anti-viral and anti-amoebic. The quinolone derivatives have anti-malarial properties, such as amodiaquine, chloroquine, primaquine, and quinine. The quinolones preventsthe polymerization and kill the malaria parasite by accumulating toxic-free heme. Quinolineare also found in alcoholic beverages. Quinoline is an alkaloid made from numerous plant species including Mentha species. They are also present in cocoa, black tea and scotch whiskey. It also is a flavoring ingredient and a heterocyclic aromatic organic compound.
