Arabic translation:الكيميائي
Explanation:
Pronounced AL-KEEMYA'IYY

You failed to provide context. As the term refers to an obsolete practice, its rendition depends on how it is used, whether in a modern frame of reference or within a medieval frame of reference. The above suggestion assumes that this is going to be some sort of a title, where the required expression needs to be telegraphic rather than explanatory.
