Separation sciences

Studies of selective/specific retention or migration processes in chromatography, electrophoresis, electrochromatography integrating their compatibility with detection modes.

Recent developments:

 Orthogonal mechanism to develop multidimensional chromatographic systems

 Ultra-fast supercritical fluid chromatography

 New trends in capillary electrophoresis

 Synthesis and characterization of new stationary phases


  • Organization of professional training for technicians or engineers from the French industry or from public institutes in chromatography, sample pretreatment, electrophoresis and validation of methods
  • Strong contribution from researchers of this group to the French Association of Separation Sciences, i.e Association Francophone des Sciences Séparatives (AFSEP), to the EUSSS (EUropean Society for Separation Sciences), to scientific committees of national (SEP) and international symposia (ISC, ISSS)
