Course Description
This short course is designed to provide participants with an understanding of the principles of sustainability and green chemistry as applied to chemical analysis. Upon successful completion of the course, the participant will have an understanding of the principles of green chemistry, the principles of green engineering, resources to further their understanding of green chemistry, and insight into solvent replacement and greener analytical technologies. The course will begin by discussing principles of green chemistry and engineering as supporting pillars of sustainable development. Then specific examples of green analytical chemistry will be presented. Solvent replacements and alternatives will be discussed, metrics to evaluate the greenness of analytical methods will be presented, and analytical techniques will be presented from a green perspective. Finally, green chemistry education and resources will be presented. Throughout the course both principles and practical aspects of the outlined topics will be presented.

Target Audience
This short course is intended for both bench and supervisory chemists responsible for the method development in the analytical laboratory. Lab managers and decision-makers will gain specific knowledge to provide an informed judgment on future project directions.

Course Instructor's Biography
Dr. Douglas E. Raynie is an Associate Research 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. He earned his Ph.D. at Brigham Young University under the direction of Dr. Milton L. Lee. His undergraduate degree is from Augustana (South Dakota) College, with majors in chemistry and biology. Analytical separations research in Dr. Raynie’s laboratory 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.
