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:
^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.
