A new simple and sensitive kinetic spectrophotometric method for the determination of silymarin in pure form and in pharmaceutical formulations is described. The method is based on the oxidation of the drug with potassium permanganate at pH 7.0 +/- 0.2. The reaction is followed spectrophotometrically by measuring the decrease in the absorbance at 530 nm.(More)
A simple and fast spectrophotometric procedure has been developed for the determination of famotidine. The method is based on the interaction of ninhydrin with primary amines present in the famotidine. This reaction produces a blue coloured product which absorbed maximally at 590 nm. The effects of variables such as reagent concentration and reaction time(More)
A novel spectrofluorimetric method has been developed for the determination of doxepin hydrochloride in commercial dosage forms. The method is based on the fluorescent ion pair complex formation of the drug with eosin Y in the presence of sodium acetate–acetic acid buffer solution of pH 4.52 which is extractable in dichloromethane. The extracted complex(More)
A spectrophotometric method has been developed for the determination of amlodipine besylate in pure form and in pharmaceutical preparations. The method is based on the reaction of the primary amino group of the drug with ninhydrin in N,N'-dimethylformamide (DMF) medium producing a coloured complex which absorbs maximally at 595 nm. Beer's law is obeyed in(More)
Two simple and sensitive spectrophotometric methods have been proposed for the determination of amlodipine besylate either in pure form or in pharmaceutical formulations. The first method is based on the charge transfer complexation reaction of the drug with 2,3-dichloro 5,6-dicyano 1,4-benzoquinone (DDQ) to give coloured product having maximum absorbance(More)
The main aim of this work is to develop and validate two spectrophotometric methods for the quantitative analysis of rabeprazole sodium in commercial dosage forms. Method A is based on the reaction of drug with 3-methyl-2-benzothiazolinone hydrazone hydrochloride (MBTH) in the presence of ammonium cerium(IV) nitrate in acetic acid medium at room temperature(More)
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)
Three simple and sensitive extractive spectrophotometric methods have been described for the assay of diltiazem hydrochloride either in pure form or in pharmaceutical formulations. The developed methods involve formation of coloured chloroform extractable ion-pair complexes of the drug with bromothymol blue (BTB), bromophenol blue (BPB) and bromocresol(More)
A simple and sensitive kinetic spectrophotometric method is described, based on the oxidation of norfloxacin with alkaline potassium permanganate. The reaction is followed spectrophotometrically by measuring the rate of change of absorbance at 603 nm. The initial rate and fixed time (at 3 min) methods are utilized for constructing the calibration graphs 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)
