Relevant Research Groups


Ben Burger
Research Summary:
The Laboratory for Ecological Chemistry (LECUS) focuses on the development of techniques for the analysis of trace quantities of volatile organic compounds and the application of these methods in the analysis of insect, mammalian, avian and reptile semiochemicals (e.g. pheromones), the analysis of air and water pollutants and the identification of off-flavours in food and beverages.

André de Villiers
Research Summary:
The focus of the research is on new developments in the field of separation sciences. These include the areas of ultra-high pressure and high temperature liquid chromatography, comprehensive chromatographic techniques, gas chromatography-olfactometry and innovative sample preparation techniques. Within the context of Stellenbosch these techniques are applied primarily to as powerful tools in the bourgeoning new field of wine science.

Ed Jacobs
Research Summary:
My research and that of my students involve membrane technology and water, in that we treat water with the aid of the membranes and membrane processes that we develop. The research, development and establishment of filtration technology, with the accent on eventual commercialization of any successful technology, lie at the core of the effort.

Relevant Research Groups


Klaus Koch
Research Summary:
Our research acknowledges the great importance of the Platinum Group Metals to South Africa as the world’s largest supplier of PGMs. Our mission is to contribute to fundamental new knowledge of the chemistry of the PGMs, and to develop the skills to meet the needs of this industry. We aim to establish a nationally and internationally recognized centre of expertise in this field.

Maritha le Roux
The Laboratory for Ecological Chemistry (LECUS) focuses on the development of techniques for the analysis of trace quantities of volatile organic compounds and the application of these methods in the analysis of insect, mammalian, avian and reptile semiochemicals (e.g. pheromones), and in the analysis of indigenous herbal tea aroma, e.g. rooibos and honeybush.
