CHEM 213, CHEM 331, CHEM 451, CHEM 455, CHEM 456
Research Interests 
Professor Albazi’s research interests are in the areas of analytical and bio-analytical chemistry. Current research focused on the development and validation of HPLC methods to test for pharmaceutical products as well as dietary supplements. Several Test Methods have often been developed and applied in collaboration with pharmaceutical industries. At Northeastern Illinois University, Dr. Albazi has initiated the Separation Science option in the Master’s Degree program in Chemistry and has developed and taught the following graduate courses in this field: Gas Chromatography Liquid Chromatograph Advanced Chromatographic Methods (High Performance Capillary Electrophoresis and Chiral Separation) Method Development and Validation in Liquid Chromatography Separation Methods Advanced Analytical Chemistry Separation Science
