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.

Sasol-Chair at Sasol, South Africa
Prof. Albena Lederer, the Sasol-Chair in Analytical Polymer Science, was at Sasol in Sasolburg. Great thanks to our hosts and collaborators in Sasol.
Congratulations Dr. Ndumiso Sibanda
Now it’s official: Ndumiso Sibanda was awarded at the Faculty of Science’s autumn graduation ceremony. Congratulations, Ndumiso!
