Course Description
This short course is designed to provide participants with an understanding of the principles of sustainability and green chemistry. Upon successful completion of the course, the participant will have an understanding of the principles of green chemistry, the principles of green engineering, and resources to further their understanding of green chemistry. The course will begin by discussing principles of sustainable development. Case studies will be presented to exemplify key concepts in toxicology, life cycle analysis, and supply chain issues. Then the principles of green chemistry will be discussed relative to sustainability goals. Finally, green chemistry education and resources will be presented. Throughout the course both principles and practical aspects of the outlined topics will be presented. PLEASE BRING FLASH DRIVE FOR ON-SITE UPDATES TO COURSE.

Target Audience
All levels of analytical chemists and analytical laboratory managers.

Course Instructor's Biography
Dr. Raynie is a Research Associate Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at South Dakota State University. Prior to joining SDSU, he was employed for eleven years as a Senior Scientist at Procter and Gamble's Corporate Research Division. Dr. Raynie’s broad research interests are in the field of sustainability and green chemistry. His two major areas of research are bioprocessing using supercritical fluids and related technologies and analytical separations. Active projects in this area include pretreatment strategies for lignocellulosic biomass (including use of supercritical fluids, ionic liquids, and deep eutectic solvents) and the use of liquid carbon dioxide in the leather tanning industry. Analytical separations research includes high-resolution chromatography (high-temperature LC and SFC), chromatographic sample preparation (ASE, SFE, SPME, and SPE), chromatography theory, green analytical chemistry, and problem-based learning in analytical chemistry. This analytical research is applied to measurements of the environmental fate and transport of anthropogenic compounds like antimicrobials and fluorinated surfactants. In addition to several publications and presentations in these areas, he has taught short courses covering ASE, SFE, SPME, sample preparation, green chemistry, and analytical problem-solving, and served on the editorial advisory boards of the Journal of Microcolumn Separations, the Encyclopedia of Separation Science, and Pharmaceutical Formulation and Quality.
