Different spectrophotometric methods are presented for the simultaneous determination of benazepril hydrochloride and hydrochlorothiazide in pharmaceutical tablets. The first method depends on second derivative (2D) ultraviolet spectrophotometry, with zero crossing and peak to base measurement. The second derivative amplitudes at 214.8 and 227.4 nm were(More)
Two methods are described for the simultaneous determination of benazepril HCl and hydrochlorothiazide in binary mixture. The first method was based on HPTLC separation of the two drugs followed by densitometric measurements of their spots at 238 and 275 nm for benazepril HCl and hydrochlorothiazide, respectively. The separation was carried out on Merck(More)
Three methods are described for the determination of lisinopril in the pharmaceutical tablets. The spectrophotometric method depends on the reaction of the lisinopril with sodium hypochlorite and phenyl hydrazine to form a condensation product measured at 362 nm. The spectrophotometric method was extended to develop a stability indicating method. The(More)
Different spectrophotometric and HPTLC-densitometric methods are presented for the simultaneous determination of lisinopril and hydrochlorothiazide in pharmaceutical tablets. The spectrophotometric methods include third derivative (3D) ultraviolet spectrophotometry with zero crossing measurement at 217.4 and 233.4 nm, second derivative of the ratio spectra(More)
Three methods are presented for the determination of acebutolol HCl in presence of its acid-induced degradation product. The first method was based on measurement of the first derivative amplitude of acebutolol HCl at 266.6 nm. The second method was based on separation of acebutolol HCl from its acid-induced degradation product followed by densitometric(More)
The characteristic nature of low-angle x-ray scattering from biological samples and its dependence on molecular structure is a subject of increasing interest. In this work, low-angle x-ray scattering from lyophilized (freeze-dried) whole blood, haemoglobin (Hb), serum and red blood cell membranes is studied. The scattering profiles of these samples are(More)
Low-angle x-ray scattering (LAXS) from lyophilized blood and its constituents is characterized by the presence of two peaks in the forward direction of scattering. These peaks are found to be sensitive to the variations in the molecular structure of a given sample. The present work aims to explore the nature of LAXS from a variety of lyophilized biological(More)
In recent years, the new trend is towards bio-fuel. One of these biofuels is ethanol (ethyl alcohol), which could be produced economically by the controlled fermentation of biomasses. The results of the alcoholic fermentation of beet sugar molasses and wheat milling residues (Akalona) were fed into a computer program. The kinetic parameters for these(More)
An improved form of cold cathode ion source has been designed and constructed. It consists of stainless steel hollow cylinder anode and stainless steel cathode disc, which are separated by a Teflon flange. The electrical discharge and output characteristics have been measured at different pressures using argon, nitrogen, and oxygen gases. The ion exit(More)
