A modified and highly sensitive spectrophotometric method for the determination of nitrate in trace quantities in environmental samples is described. The method is based on the reaction of nitrate ion with brucine and 3-methyl-2-benzothiazolinone hydrazone hydrochloride (MBTH) in sulfuric acid medium to yield a violet-colored product which is stable for(More)
A simple and sensitive spectrophotometric method for the determination of tryptophan (TRP) is described. The method is based on the coupling reaction of tryptophan with diazotized p-phenylenediamine dihydrochloride (PPDD) in sulfuric acid medium to give the colored product having an absorption maximum at 520 nm. The coupled product was stable for 2h. Beer's(More)
A sensitive, rapid, and simple spectrophotometric method is described for the determination of sulfa drugs. The method is based on the formation of a red-colored product by the diazotization of sulfonamides such as sulfathiazole (SFT), sulfadiazine (SFD), sulfacetamide (SFA), sulfamethoxazole (SFMx), sulfamerazine (SFMr), sulfaguanidine (SFG), and(More)
Novel coupling reagents are used for the simple and sensitive spectrophotometric determination of folic acid either in pure form or in its pharmaceutical preparations. The methods are based on the probable diazotization of the p-aminobenzoylglutamic acid obtained after reductive clevage of folic acid, followed by either coupling with iminodibenzyl to give a(More)
A sensitive, selective, and rapid enzymatic method is proposed for the quantification of hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2)) using 3-methyl-2-benzothiazolinonehydrazone hydrochloride (MBTH) and 10,11-dihydro-5H-benz(b,f)azepine (DBZ) as chromogenic cosubstrates catalyzed by horseradish peroxidase (HRP) enzyme. MBTH traps free radical released during oxidation of(More)
Sensitive and simple spectrophotometric methods for the determination of metronidazole (MNZ) and tinidazole (TNZ) in either pure form or in its pharmaceutical formulations are described. The first method is based on the interaction of 3-methylbenzothiazolin-2-one hydrazone (MBTH) with MNZ/TNZ (reduced drug) in presence of copper sulphate and pyridine in(More)
A rapid, sensitive and simple spectrophotometric method is proposed for the determination of hydrolysis products of paracetamol (PRL) and phenacetin (PHN) with sodium 1,2-naphthoquinone-4-sulphonate and cetyltrimethyl ammonium bromide (CTA) in alkaline medium. The absorbances are measured at 570 and 500 nm and the molar absorptivities found to be 1.118 x(More)
Two simple, rapid and sensitive spectrophotometric methods for the determination of catecholamine derivatives (pyrocatechol, dopamine, levodopa and methyldopa) are developed. The first method involves the oxidation of o-dihydroxybenzene derivatives by N-bromosuccinimide followed by oxidative coupling with isoniazid leading to the formation of a red-coloured(More)
A sensitive and simple spectrophotometric method for the estimation of certain catechol derivatives like pyrocatechol (PCL), dopamine hydrochloride (DPH), levodopa (LDP), methyl dopa (MDP) and adrenaline (ADH) in either pure form or in its pharmaceutical formulation is described. The method is based on the interaction of diazotised p-nitro aniline (DPNA)(More)
