Welcome to the Polymer Separation, an international research group spanning across Europe and Africa. The group was established in 2007 and joins together researchers from Stellenbosch University and Leibniz-Intitut für Polymerforschung.
We are a joint research group across Stellenbosch University and Leibniz-Institut für Polymerforschung with more than 15 years’ experience. Our main focus areas are interaction and size exclusion chromatography, field flow fractionation and multiple detection techniques. Through a collaborative effort that includes postgraduates, scientists and technicians alike, we study the structure-property relation of advanced macromolecular systems.

Group Activity – Summer Garden Party
Our research group enjoyed a lovely summer afternoon in Dresden with a fun garden party.
Welcome to Dresden, Petronella
A warm welcome to Petronella, a PhD candidate from our research group at Stellenbosch University. We wish you all the best with your research.
Long Night of Science
Our research group had a very successful and fun Dresden Long Night of Science, with over 1300 visitor at IPF, Dresden.
