Abstract: A poster presentation regarding the development of a greener selective acylation method for steroids. Introduction: The pharmaceutical industry is one of the largest consumers of organic solvents. Solvent selection in drug synthesis is a fundamental step as it affects the yield, solubility and impurity profile of the product being synthesised. Pharmaceutical manufacturers aim at reducing solvent use by minimising the number of synthetic steps, increasing solvent recycling and replacing organic solvents with novel greener alternatives. Aim: To find and use an alternative solvent to dichloromethane in order to develop a greener selective acylation method for the synthesis of the 17ɑ,21-diester steroid.
