Liquid chromatography

Liquid chromatography has gained a status of utterly the most popular separation technique in the world. Any success in modern chemistry is hardly conceivable without the support of dozens of liquid chromatographs found in any larger laboratory. Based on a principle of chemical compounds being separated according to their different affinities to a mobile and a stationary phase, liquid chromatography is robust and easily operable. Simple enough for daily use but yet presenting new and new challenges to scientists who are still coming up with innovative separation modes and/or applications.

Ideal for those who would like to Participate on this World-wide Research field, Learn the Chromatographic Techniques for their future Professional Carrier and want to turn their Ideas and Skills into a readily Applicable Output.


Starting from small inorganic ions, electrophoresis has developed into a versatile separation tool that is nowadays applied to pharmaceuticals as well as large biomolecules or even nanoparticles or living cells. It is based on the universal principle of charged species gaining different velocities under an influence of an electric field. While not yet as much popular as chromatography, electrophoresis benefits from being completely described mathematically. Thus novel electrophoretical strategies can be rationally designed often by means of a computer simulation.

Ideal for Creative Souls who can Combine both Chemistry and Math into new Original Ideas or just want to become Familiar with this appealing Separation Technique.

Method development & phys-chem measurements

Carefully planned experiments serve us for not only supporting the wide community of analysts with newly developed methods but also for introducing original experimental setups and separation strategies. Last but not least, getting necessary input parameters for our theoretical models and experimental verification of these stays at the heart of our research strategy.

Ideal for motivated Experimentalists who want to get Skilled in both Analytical chemistry and Deep Understanding of the underlying Principles.

Software development & Mathematical modelling

Located at the department of Physical and macromolecular chemistry, we not merely utilize the two separation techniques but we are continuously making a journey into the tiniest details of their principles. This involves – among others – solving various mathematical problems from chemical equilibria to flux continuity equations. Finally, we build our gained knowledge into several software tools that come in handy to a wide community of separation scientists.
