A simple flow injection system is proposed for the determination of thiamine in pharmaceutical formulations. The determination is based on the precipitation reaction of thiamine with silicotungstic acid in acidic medium to form a thiamine silicotungstate suspension that is measured at 420 nm. Adding 0.05% (w/v) poly(ethyleneglycol) in the carrier solution(More)
A flow injection system with spectrophotometric detection is proposed for determining l-ascorbic acid in pharmaceutical formulations. In this system a column containing Fe(OH)(3) immobilized in polyester resin (packed reactor) is inserted before the detector. Fe(III)-1,10-phenanthroline complex is reduced by l-ascorbic acid to produce(More)
A flow injection spectrophotometric procedure was developed for determining levodopa in tablets. The determination of this drug was carried out by reacting it with lead(IV) dioxide immobilized in polyester resin packed in a solid-phase reactor and the dopachrome yielded was monitored at 520 nm. The analytical curve for levodopa was linear in the(More)
A bidimensional HPLC method for the simultaneous determination of sulfamethoxazole (SMX) and trimethoprim (TMP) in bovine milk has been developed and validated. After centrifugation, aliquots (150 microl) of milk samples were directly injected to a column-switching HPLC system. At the first step a RAM octyl-BSA column was employed to automatically remove(More)
Based on the fact that Synadenium grantii is used in folk medicine for the treatment of peptic ulcers and inflammatory diseases, this work describes its chemical and pharmacological properties. Pharmacological investigation of the crude bark extract showed a high antioxidant activity over several scavenger systems, such as 2,2'-azino-bis(More)
