IQ Tool Featured on Cover of Green Chemistry Journal
The iGAL developed by the IQ Green Chemistry Working Group has been featured on the cover of the May Issue of Green Chemistry.
The GAL represents the first substantial green efficiency goal for any manufacturing process to a given Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API). It has the distinct advantage over other traditional waste metrics of defining the expected environmental impact for producing any pharmaceutical agent by considering the complexity of its ideal synthesis route. By establishing this quantifiable descriptor, process greenness becomes measurable, and as such delivers manageable and credible green chemistry process goals. More information can be found on the Working Group's webpage.
