The performance of electrocoagulation, with aluminium sacrificial anode, in the treatment of metal ions (Cu2+, Zn2+ and Cr(VI)) containing wastewater, has been investigated. Several working parameters, such as pH, current density and metal ion concentrations were studied in an attempt to achieve a higher removal capacity. Results obtained with synthetic(More)
A simple, sensitive and rapid HPLC method was developed and validated for the simultaneous determination of famotidine (FMT) and related impurities in pharmaceuticals. Chromatographic separation was accomplished within 10 min on a porous graphitic carbon (PGC) column using 50:50 v/v ACN-water containing 0.5% pentane sulphonic acid (PSA) as the mobile phase.(More)
A new simple, rapid and sensitive liquid chromatographic method has been developed and validated for the simultaneous determination of pseudoephdrine, pheniramine, guaifenisin, pyrilamine, chlorpheniramine and dextromethorphan in cough and cold pharmaceuticals. The separation of these compounds was achieved within 13 min on a Kromasil C18 column using an(More)
A two in one attempt for the removal of tartrazine and metal ions on activated carbon has been developed. The method was based on the modification of activated carbon with tartrazine then its application for the removal of Pb(II), Cd(II) and Cr(III) ions at different pH values. Tartrazine adsorption data were modelled using both Langmuir and Freundlich(More)
A simple and rapid capillary zone electrophoresis (CZE) method with UV detection has been developed for the determination of famotidine and its potential impurities in pharmaceutical formulations. The electrophoretic separation of these compounds was performed using a fused silica capillary and 37.5mmolL(-1) phosphate buffer pH 3.5 as the electrolyte. Under(More)
A flow-injection method for measuring the peroxide value (PV, mequiv. O2 kg(-1)) in edible oils is described. The technique is based on spectrophotometric monitoring at 660 nm of methylene blue (MB), generated from leucomethylene blue (LMB) oxidation with peroxides present in oil samples. After being optimized, the method was validated in terms of(More)
The removal of rotenone from synthetic and real wastewaters using modified activated carbons has been investigated. In order to enhance the removal capacity of rotenone, activated carbon was chemically modified through impregnation with NH(3) and (NH(4))(2)S(2)O(8) solutions. The resulting carbons were found to present different surface chemistries, while(More)
A new high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method for the simultaneous determination of pentoxifylline and its main related substances – theophylline, theobromine and caffeine – in pharmaceuticals has been developed. Chromatographic separation was achieved within 5 min on a monolithic column eluted with a mobile phase consisting of methanol – water(More)
A new simple gas diffusion flow injection method has been developed for the determination of thiomersal in biological samples. The method is based on cold vapor generation of monoatomic mercury from thiomersal reaction with acidic stannous chloride solution (0.6%) acting as reducing agent. The evolved mercury partially diffuses through a Teflon membrane(More)
The differential pulse voltammetric (DPV) determination of trimebutine (TMB) was achieved at a glassy carbon electrode in acetonitrile/0.1 M LiClO4. Trimebutine gave two irreversible, diffusion controlled peaks at 740 and 1318 mV versus Ag/AgCl reference electrode, respectively. The second oxidation peak was used to determine trimebutine concentrations in(More)
