Abuzar Kabir is a Research Assistant Professor at the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Florida International University, Miami, Florida, USA. His research focusses on the synthesis, characterization, and applications of novel sol-gel derived advanced material systems in the form of chromatographic stationary phases, surface coatings of high-efficiency microextraction sorbents, nanoparticles, microporous and mesoporous functionalized sorbents, molecularly imprinted polymers for analyzing trace and ultra-trace level concentration of polar, medium polar, nonpolar, ionic analytes, heavy metals, and organometallic pollutants from complex sample matrices. His inventions, fabric phase sorptive extraction (FPSE), and dynamic fabric phase sorptive extraction (DFPSE), capsule phase microextraction (CPME), molecular imprinting technology, super polar sorbents, In-Vial microextraction (IVME) have drawn global attention. He has developed and formulated numerous high-efficiency sol-gel hybrid inorganic-organic sorbents based on Silicon, Titanium, Zirconium, Tantalum, Germanium chemistries. Dr. Kabir has authored 16 patents, 9 book chapters, 52 journal articles and 90 conference papers.
