Atom economy (atom efficiency) describes the conversion efficiency of a chemical process in terms of all atoms involved (desired products produced). In an ideal chemical process, the amount of starting materials or reactants equals the amount of all products generated (see stoichiometry) and no atom is wasted. Atom economy is an important concept of green chemistry philosophy, and one of the most widely used ways to measure the “greenness” of a process or synthesis.
