In this mini-review, the importance and implementation of green chemistry practices in the pharmaceutical industry are illustrated. With specific examples, industrially most important organic transformations are highlighted along with their applications in the synthesis of drug molecules. A brief comparison between traditional unsustainable methods and modern green methods is made to shed light on the economic and environmental benefits of greener methods. In the end, green chemistry practices in the pharmaceutical industry of India and China are also discussed.

: The Pd-catalyzed coupling of aryl (pseudo)halides and amines is one of the most powerful approaches for the formation of C(sp2 )-N bonds. The pioneering reports from Migita and subsequently Buchwald and Hartwig on the coupling of aminostannanes and aryl bromides rapidly evolved into general and practical tin-free protocols with broad substrate scope, which led to the establishment of what is now known as the Buchwald-Hartwig amination. This Minireview summarizes the evolution of this cross-cou...

We report the use of biaryl phosphorinanes as ligands for Pd catalyzed cross-coupling reactions. A modular synthesis was developed that employs a double conjugate addition of primary biaryl phosphines into 1,1,5,5-tetraalkyl penta-1,4-diene-3-ones. Notably, this synthesis does not require the use of copper, a known contaminant in structurally related biaryl phosphane ligands. Using the synthetic strategy described above, we synthesized a library of biaryl phosphorinanes, varying their substituti...

Palladium nanoparticles ligated with inexpensive triphenylphosphine and amphiphile PS-750-M are suitable for exploring the reactivity of carbenes in aqueous nanomicelles. Nanocatalyst is highly selective for metal-carbene migratory insertion and micelles PS-750-M shields the in-situ generated carbene to prevent the dimerization. In addition to broad substrate scope, the nanocatalyst is thoroughly characterized by NMR, SEM, HRTEM, XPS, and TGA. The sustainability of the reaction system is demonst...

This review discusses specific examples of the application of the 12 principles of green chemistry from the crop protection industry. Many of the examples are operated on a multiton scale. Although there are numerous examples of green chemistry in agrochemical manufacture, a consistent, holistic application of these principles is encouraged to minimize the environmental footprint and increase the safety of commercial synthetic routes to crop protection active ingredients.

Green chemistry (GC) has seen significant growth, driven by cost savings, regulation, and customer demand. At the same time, this growth has been slow and uneven. While large companies in developed markets have for the most part implemented GC strategies, this is not the case for smaller companies and manufacturers in developing countries such as China and India. Many of the barriers reported earlier remain today and include lack of policy incentives, insufficient funding and expertise in GC, la...

In an effort to improve sustainability and reduce the cost of goods for active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), pharma companies have partnered on varying portions of their supply chain with contract providers. This approach brings with it numerous cost benefits but also logistical challenges. However, it also offers opportunities to integrate sustainable science via green chemistry and engineering more holistically into the entire sequence. The ACS Green Chemistry Institute Pharmaceutical Rou...

A nanocatalyst for micellar Buchwald-Hartwig aminations is developed, thoroughly characterized, and applied on a variety of substrates. The catalyst is stable under ambient conditions for at least six months. The catalyst retained its activity after several cycles, and its structure remained intact as confirmed by NMR spectroscopy. Association of Pd nanoparticles with Cu by a phosphine ligand is revealed by 31P NMR spectroscopy and their linkage with the activated carbon surface is revealed by X...

Photoenzymatic cascades can be used for selective oxygenation of C−H-Bonds under mild conditions circumventing the hydrogen peroxide mediated peroxygenase inactivation via in situ H2O2 generation. Here, we report the “on demand” production of hydrogen peroxide via methanol assisted reduction of molecular oxygen using UV-illuminated titanium dioxide (Aeroxide P25) combined with the enantioselective hydroxylation of ethylbenzene to (R)-1-phenylethanole catalyzed by the Unspecific Peroxygenase from...

The palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling of amines and aryl (pseudo)halides, now commonly known as the Buchwald–Hartwig amination, was first reported 25 years ago. Since the simultaneous breakthrough reports of Buchwald and Hartwig in 1995, this reaction has transformed the way synthetic chemists think about synthesizing aromatic amines. In this highlight article, a short showcasing discussion about the genesis of this reaction is provided, along with selected examples showing the impact of this t...

Abstract null null Chemistry in water enabled by surfactants offers remarkable benefits from compliance and sustainability standpoints. It has consequently significantly grown and gained major interest of synthetic organic chemists in the last decade. Rapid growth and adoption have mostly occurred through an increasing number of examples of successful, selective syntheses of desired products, although numerous and significant gaps remain in understanding the physical and mechanistic aspects of t...

We report the sustainable and efficient synthesis of a new type of quinoline derivatives bearing one or two SO2 CF3 groups. The protocol is metal-, catalyst- and irradiation-free, involves the use of readily available and stable precursors, and avoids the formation of side products. Also, the mild conditions of the process allow the tolerance of a wide range of functional groups.

This paper represents an electrochemical transformation by demonstrating the dual role of an organic bromide salt, i.e., tetra-n-butylammonium bromide (TBAB), as a brominating agent and as an electrolyte for the regioselective bromination of several imidazo heteroaromatic motifs. Instead of using a transition metal/external oxidant, this methodology utilized electron holes and electrons by means of anodic oxidation and cathodic reduction to form the desired products in good to excellent yields a...

The use of the inexpensive, benign, and sustainable polymer, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC), in water enables nucleophilic aromatic subsitution (SNAr) reactions between various nucleophiles and electrophiles. The mild reaction conditions facilitate a broad functional group tolerance that can be utilized for subsequent derivatization for the synthesis of pharmaceutically relevant building blocks. The use of only equimolar amounts of all reagents and water as reaction solvent reveals the gre...

The multifactorial nature of Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a reason for the lack of effective drugs as well as a basis for the development of "multi-target-directed ligands" (MTDLs). As cases increase in developing countries, there is a need of new drugs that are not only effective but also accessible. With this motivation, we report the first sustainable MTDLs, derived from cashew nutshell liquid (CNSL), an inexpensive food waste with anti-inflammatory properties. We applied a framework combinati...

Owing to a growing awareness towards environmental impact, the search for “greener”, safer, and cost-effective solvents able to replace petroleum-derived solvents has never been greater today. In this context, the use of environmentally responsible solvents like water and the so-called Deep Eutectic Solvents (DESs), constructed from bio-based compounds, has recently experienced important growth in several fields of sciences. This short review highlights the key features of the chemistry of water...
