About CFS (Jerry King)
CFS (Jerry King) is a R&D LLC Consultancy currently located in Fayetteville, Arkansas. CEO-Jerry King, PhD, provides consulting services particularly in the areas of sub- and super-critical fluid processing (i.e., extraction) and similar pressurized fluid processing, using environmental- benign (green) solvents – including water, ethanol, and GRAS-approved media. Dr. King has over 55 years of experience in the above subject areas, dating back to 1968, as well as a multi-disciplinary background encompassing the areas of physical/analytical chemistry, chemical and food engineering, food technology, and industrial applied experience in polymer-packaging- and surface chemistry. CFS (Critical Fluid Symposia), takes its title from the 10th International Symposium on Supercritical Fluids (ISSF), for which Dr. King as chairman, organized in 2012. Dr. King overall extended expertise is in the general area of separation science – both process and analytical, with a particular focus in all aspects of chromatography, including the use of physicochemical chromatography (inverse chromatography) to generate requisite data for engineering design and scale up.
As documented on following sections of this website, Dr. King brings his interdisciplinary approach to solve a diversity of problems that benefit from his experience involving equal amounts of industrial, governmental, and academic experience. For 16 ½ years he was the Lead Scientist in the High Pressure Laboratory at the ARS-USDA, in Peoria, IL, running the High Pressure Laboratory’s supercritical fluid program, as applied in the sectors of food, natural products, bioenergy, regulatory chemistry, and nutraceuticals. He offers additional experience in the use of compressed water (subcritical water) from his R&D programs at both the USDA and as a professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Arkansas-Fayetteville. Since 2013, he has an extensive focus on providing consulting services also to cannabis and hemp industry with regard to processing technology and analytical chemistry.
Dr. King lectures widely at many national and international courses and can provide tailored instructional short courses to organizations requiring training/background in the above topical areas. On-site, hands-on, assistance is available in the above areas both in the USA and international as required. The potential to obtain experimental or literature search data required by companies is also available from CFS, including documentation such as SOPs, safety data, etc. Dr. King is available as an expert witness in litigation cases and for the prosecution of patent applications.
