Two pyridostigmine bromide (PB) selective electrodes were investigated with 2-nitrophenyl octyl ether as a plasticizer in a polymeric matrix of carboxylated polyvinyl chloride (PVC-COOH), based on the interaction between the drug solution and the dissociated COOH groups in the PVC-COOH. One of the sensors was fabricated by using PVC-COOH only as anionic(More)
Three novel neostigmine bromide (NEO) selective electrodes were investigated with 2-nitrophenyl octyl ether as a plasticiser in a polymeric matrix of polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Sensor 1 was fabricated using tetrakis(4-chlorophenyl)borate (TpClPB) as an anionic exchanger without incorporation of an ionophore. Sensor 2 used 2-hydroxy propyl β-cyclodextrin as(More)
Four glutathione (GSH)-selective electrodes were developed with different techniques and in different polymeric matrices. Precipitation-based technique with bathophenanthroline-ferrous as cationic exchanger in polyvinyl chloride (PVC) matrix was used for sensor 1 fabrication. beta-Cyclodextrin (beta-CD)-based technique with either(More)
The construction and electrochemical response characteristics of beta-cyclodextrin-based sensor for determination of the amino glycosidic antibiotic, tobramycin, is described. The membrane incorporates carboxylated poly (vinyl chloride) as matrix polymer, tetrakis-fluorophenyl borate as fixed anionic site and nitrophenyloctylether as plasticizer. The uptake(More)
Three sensitive, selective and precise stability-indicating methods for the determination of the anti-Alzheimer's drug, rivastigmine hydrogen tartrate (RIV) in the presence of its alkaline degradation product (major metabolite, NAP 226-90) and in pharmaceutical formulation were developed and validated. The first method is a second derivative (D(2))(More)
Three reliable spectrophotometric and spectrofluorimetric procedures are described for the determination of fluorouracil in bulk powder and ampoules in the presence of its degradation products. One spectrophotometric procedure, based on measurement at 555 nm of the violet-coloured complex formed by fluorouracil with cobalt(II), has a detection limit of 0.03(More)
This work deals with spectrophotometric, spectrofluorimetric, and potentiometric analyses of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) cationic detergent. The spectrophotometric procedure depends on measuring the absorbance of its binary complex with eosin yellow in Britton-Robinson buffer (pH 4) at Lambda max 547 nm in the range of 2.0-14.0 microg/mL with an(More)
The superoxide scavenging activity of DL methionine has been studied in vitro using PMS-NADH (phenazine methosulfateNADH) system, to test the direct superoxide scavenging effect of DL methionine itself without converting it to any antioxidant molecule. Another method for detecting the antioxidant activity of DL methionine is iron thiocyanate method, it has(More)
The construction and electrochemical response characteristics of poly (vinyl chloride) matrix membrane sensors for seven phenolic compounds (phenol, o-cresol, p-cresol, p-chlorophenol, o-nitrophenol, alpha-naphthol and beta-naphthol) are described. The membranes incorporate ion association complexes of these seven phenolic anions with(More)
Article history: Received on: 02/03/2013 Revised on: 29/03/2013 Accepted on: 15/04/2013 Available online: 12/05/2013 This study is an investigation of the physicochemical interaction of Losartan potassium (LST K), an angiotensinII receptor (type AT1) antagonist, with micelles of triton X, a nonionic surfactant. The effect of micelles on the spectral(More)
