Separation Science Group

RSC Separation Science Group

The Separation Science Group is one of the RSC's many Interest Groups. The Interest Groups are member driven groups which exist to benefit RSC members, and the wider chemical science community, in line with the RSC's strategy and charter.


To provide a forum for those with an interest in the techniques to meet and discuss their work. 


The primary focus is on new developments and improvements applied to separation techniques, although reviews and training seminars are also regularly covered. There is an increasing drive to focus the meetings on topics that are relevant to analytical measurements as applied in the industrial laboratory.


The groups organises lectures, symposia and similar events both as an individual group and in conjunction with other groups whose objectives are consistent with those of the RSC. To this end, a number of meetings are held jointly with the Chromatography Society each year.


We also have an online community, which is based on MyRSC, for anyone who shares our interests.

Get Involved

We are always looking for new members who are keen to get involved and to help organise our activities. If you would like to find out more please contact the Secretary.
