14th International Symposium on Hyphenated Techniques in Chromatography and Separation Technology

 Ghent, Belgium    January 27-29, 2016

SFC Short Course

We are happy to provide you with an optional short course on Hyphenated Techniques in Supercritical Fluid Chromatography on Tuesday January 26, 2016.

This short course will cover different aspects of analytical separation techniques that employ compressed CO2 as the main mobile phase component, typically referred to as Supercritical Fluid Chromatography (SFC). Starting from an overview of the fundamental aspects of SFC, the unique retention and selectivity properties are highlighted, as are the possibilities of the technique in pharmaceutical analysis. Hyphenation of SFC with MS and its possibilities in multidimensional separations are covered in detail.

Registration Fees:

  • for students participating in HTC-14: 195 €
  • for non students, participating in HTC-14: 275 €

For non registered HTC-14 particpants, the fees are majorated with a 61 € additionnal fee and registration can be done via this form.


The SFC Short Course will take place at:

Het Pand
Room Rector Blancquaert (3rd floor)
