SELECT acronym
« on: January 24, 2012, 10:05:11 AM »
Hi, folks,

In addition to the Lipinski rule of 5, a professor of mine made a reference to the SELECT acronym in API synthesis.  For the life of me, I can't find a reference to it in any of my books.  It should represent some criteria of synthetic routes for large scale manufacture of API's.  Given the subject, I was expecting something along the lines of, "Sterics, Electronegativity, Lone Pairs," etc., but the best guess I could find online was:
Safety
Environment
Legal
Economics
Control
Throughput
^Is this the correct SELECT acronym - something more of a big business approach?  Curious if anyone else has heard of this, or if there's an alternate acronym.
