Two simple, sensitive and economical spectrophotometric methods were developed for the determination of nifedipine in pharmaceutical formulations. Method A is based on the reaction of the nitro group of the drug with potassium hydroxide in dimethyl sulphoxide (DMSO) medium to form a coloured product, which absorbs maximally at 430 nm. Method B uses(More)
Different parts of the plant Ficus glomerata Roxob was extracted with water and organic solvents. The effects of these extracts on blood sugar level of streptozotocin induced diabetic rats were studied. The pet ether extract of the stem bark of the plant reduced the blood sugar level significantly. Extracts from fruit and latex of the plant did not have any(More)
Kinetic methods for accurate determination of nortriptyline hydrochloride have been described. The methods are based on the oxidation of nortriptyline hydrochloride with KMnO4 in acidic and basic media. In acidic medium, the decrease in absorbance at 525.5 nm and in basic medium, the increase in absorbance at 608.5 nm were measured as a function of time.(More)
Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) are frequently used to predict various ecological processes and phenomenon related to water resources. Various ANN applications involve the prediction of water quality using various environmental parameters. This paper discusses the use of two environmental data sets from two sampling sites, merged together and applied to(More)
Four simple, rapid and sensitive spectrophotometric methods have been proposed for the determination of enalapril maleate in pharmaceutical formulations. The first method is based on the reaction of carboxylic acid group of enalapril maleate with a mixture of potassium iodate (KIO(3)) and iodide (KI) to form yellow colored product in aqueous medium at 25(More)
Two simple and sensitive spectrofluorimetric methods have been developed for the determination of labetalol (LBT). In method A, the native fluorescence was measured at 432 nm after excitation at 312 nm. The second method (method B) is based on the formation of a ternary complex between zinc (II), eosin and LBT. The fluorescence intensity of the ternary(More)
A simple and sensitive kinetic spectrophotometric method has been developed. The method is based on the reduction of Fe(III) with captopril. Fe(II) then reacts with potassium ferricyanide, resulting in the formation of a blue product. The reaction is followed spectrophotometrically by measuring the rate of change of absorbance at 730 nm. Thus, 1.23 x 10(-3)(More)
