The Separation Science Group
SSG, Ghent University
The Separation Science Group (SSG) at Ghent University aims at developing improved chromatographic, electrophoretic and MS strategies for organic solute analysis, purification and activity assessment. The group specializes in novel chemistries for columns for HPLC, GC, CEC and SFC, sample preparation approaches, the development of multidimensional approaches for the separation of complex samples of natural and synthetic origin and in the development of predictive algorithms allowing improved stationary phase optimized selectivity in chromatography.
The work on high-end applications focuses on the development of qualitative and quantitative methods, non-targeted approaches, fast UHPLC and on the implementation of hyphenated analytical platforms of chromatography and mass spectrometry in life sciences. More than 50 publications have been published in the past 5 years and 7 PhD-projects were completed.
