Finger millet (Eleusine coracana), an allotetraploid cereal, is widely cultivated in the arid and semiarid regions of the world. Being rich in protein and calcium, finger millet serves as an important staple food for rural populations in developing tropical countries where calcium deficiency and anemia are wide spread. Thirty-two finger millet genotypes(More)
Two simple, selective, and rapid spectrophotometric methods are described for the determination of mycophenolate mofetil (MPM) in pure form and in tablets. Both methods are based on charge-transfer complexation reaction of MPM with p-chloranilic acid (p-CA) or 2,3-dichloro-5,6-dicyano-1,4-benzoquinone (DDQ) in dioxane-acetonitrile medium resulting in(More)
A simple, sensitive and selective extractive spectrophotometric method for the determination of quetiapine fumarate (QTF) in bulk drug, tablets and spiked human urine sample is described. The method is based on the formation of a chloroform extractable yellow ion-pair complex between basic nitrogen of the drug (QTF) and the dye quinoline yellow (QY) in(More)
Two new, simple, rapid and reproducible spectrophotometric methods have been developed for the determination of lamotrigine (LMT) both in pure form and in its tablets. The first method (method A) is based on the formation of a colored ion-pair complex (1:1 drug/dye) of LMT with bromocresol green (BCG) at pH 5.02±0.01 and extraction of the complex into(More)
Quetiapine (QTF) is a potent serotonin and dopamine receptor antagonist used to treat major depressive disorders and schizophrenia. A simple, precise, accurate and costeffective titrimetric method for the determination of QTF in bulk drug and in its dosage forms has been developed and validated. The method is based on the potentiometric titration of QTF in(More)
Tramadol is a centrally acting analgesic used in the prevention and treatment of moderate to severe pain. Two sensitive, selective, and rapid spectrophotometric methods are described for the determination of tramadol in its dosage forms and in spiked human urine. The methods are based on formation of yellow ion-pairs between tramadol and two sulfonthalein(More)
Quetiapine fumarate (QTF) is a psychotropic agent belonging to the chemical class of benzisoxazole derivatives indicated for the treatment of schizophrenia. It is a selective monoaminergic antagonist with high affinity for the serotonin type 2 (5HT2), and dopamine type 2 (D2) receptors. Two simple, sensitive, selective, economical and reproducible UV(More)
Doxycycline is a member of the tetracycline derivation and has a wide range of antibacterial activity. Two simple, cost-effective, accurate and precise direct titrmetric methods to the determination of doxycycline hyclate (DOX) in pharmaceutical preparations have been developed and validated. The methods are based on the titration of DOX with 0.01 N acetous(More)
methylamino)-3,5,10,12,12a-pentahydroxy-6-methyl-1,11-dioxo-1,4,4a,5,5a,6,11,12a-octahydrotetracene-2-carboxamide hydrochloride hemiethanol hemihydrate (Fig. 1), is one of the tetracycline derivatives, which has a wide range of antibacterial activities. DOX is frequently used to treat chronic prostatitis, sinusitis, syphilis, chlamydia, pelvic inflammatory(More)
Three simple and sensitive spectrophotometric methods are described for the determination of ofloxacin (OFX) in pharmaceuticals and in spiked human urine. First and second methods are based on the measurement of absorbance of OFX in 0.1 M HCl at 293 nm (method A) and 0.1 M NaOH at 287 nm, respectively. The third method is based on the measurement of 2:1(More)
