LCGC Magazine is pleased to announce the addition of Douglas E. Raynie to its editorial advisory board.

Raynie is an associate research professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at South Dakota State University (Brookings, South Dakota). Prior to joining SDSU, he worked for 11 years as a senior scientist in Procter and Gamble’s research division.

Raynie’s research interests are in the field of sustainability and green chemistry. His two major areas of research are analytical separations and bioprocessing, using supercritical fluids and related technologies. One common theme to both of these research areas is the use of nonconventional solvents, including supercritical fluids, ionic liquids, and deep eutectic solvents. His analytical separations research includes high-resolution chromatography, chromatographic sample preparation (accelerated solvent extraction, superficial fluid chromatography, solid phase microextraction, and solid phase extraction), chromatography theory, green analytical chemistry, and problem-based learning in analytical chemistry. His active projects in bioprocessing are centered on pretreatment strategies for the conversion of lignocellulosic biomass to bioenergy or high-value materials.

Raynie received his PhD from Brigham Young University (Provo, Utah) under the direction of Milton L. Lee. His undergraduate degree is from Augustana College (Sioux Falls, South Dakota), with majors in chemistry and biology.
