ABSTRACT

 

Approaches to improve the environmental profile of manufacturing
processes and end products is an important goal in many industries,
including pharmaceuticals. In the case of pharmaceutical
manufacturing, these approaches can involve ways to increase reaction
efficiency and yield in order to reduce waste, reduce solvents and
reagents, or to improve reaction conditions when synthesizing active
pharmaceutical ingredients, intermediates, or lead compounds. The
worldwide demand for lower-priced drugs with proven benefits to
human health poses an increasing challenge to process chemists to
develop manufacturing routes that not only deliver maximum value,
but also minimize waste generation. There are existing and emerging solutions to counter
pollution. The design of green, efficient and cost competitive industrial process is the need of
era. Green chemistry seeks to promote the adoption of safer more efficient chemicals,
products and processes. In order to design inherently safer chemicals it is important to
understand the basic principles that dictate toxicity. The production of organic chemicals as
raw materials or reagents for other applications is a major sector of manufacturing polymers,
pharmaceuticals, pesticides, paints, artificial fibers, food additives, etc. Organic synthesis on
a large scale, compared to the laboratory scale, involves the use of energy, basic chemical
ingredients from the petrochemical sector, catalysts and after the end of the reaction,
separation, purification, storage, packaging, distribution etc. To educate future generations
of engineers and decision makers in the importance of green engineering in
pharmaceutical syntheses & greener designs for solvent recovery targeting the reduction of the overall solvent consumption, the associated waste, and life cycle emissions from cradle to gate. Strategic greener techniques include reactions in alternative solvents, atom economic multicomponent reactions, microwave and ultrasonic reactions, solid-supported synthesis, fluorous and ionic liquid-based recycling techniques, flow reactors and green catalytic techniques including organocatalysis, supported catalysis, biocatalysis, fluorous catalysis, catalytic direct C-H bond activation reactions, Solid state grinding & Exergetic Life Cycle Analysis (ExLCA). It is imperative that we push the frontiers of science, technology and innovation to meet these demands. Catalysis is the key technology for the development of green processes for the industrial production of API. Enzymes are the ultimate green catalysts–they are renewable, biodegradable and are generally believed to provide a more sustainable means of synthesis than more traditional chemistry approaches.

Keywords: API, Strategic Greener Techniques, Energetic Life cycle Analysis, Environmental Sustainability.
