The application of probe ion fluorimetry has succeeded in the microdetermination of six aminoglycoside antibiotics: neomycin, streptomycin, gentamicin, tobramycin, amikacin and kanamycin as sulfate salts in pure form and in some pharmaceutical preparations. The method is based on the reaction of Eu(3+) ions with aminoglycosides through amino and hydroxy(More)
A new method has been devised for the determination of diclofenac sodium in bulk and in pharmaceutical preparations using Eu3+ ions as the Fluorescent probe. The technique was built around the hypersensitive property of the transitions of the fluorescent probe ion, Eu3+, at 616 nm. This is normally a forbidden transition, but the interaction with diclofenac(More)
The computer program sparc was used to calculate the pK(a) values of some important pharmaceutical substances. The sparc models proved to be suitable for estimating the pK(a) values of beta-adrenergic blocking agents and benzodiazepine drugs. Ionization macroconstants, microconstants, zwitterionic equilibria, speciation curves as a function of the pH and(More)
Stripping voltammetric determination of valsartan using a hanging mercury drop electrode (HMDE) was described. The method was based on adsorptive accumulation of the species at HMDE, followed by first harmonic alternating current AC stripping sweep at pH 6. The behavior of adsorptive stripping response was thoroughly studied under various experimental(More)
Metabolites isolated from human plasma after oral administration of norethisterone were assayed as their novel dimethylethylsilyl ether derivatives by gas chromatography--mass spectrometry--ion selective monitoring. The major metabolite is 3 alpha, 5 alpha-tetrahydronorethisterone. The unchanged drug is present in a measurable amount even after 8 h of drug(More)
A sensitive and selective colorimetric method has been devised for the micro-determination of copper (II) ions in pure form, some chemicals and multivitamin preparations. The method depends on the formation of stable blue complexes in ammonia medium peaking at 615 nm between copper (II) ions, oxalyldihydrazide and one of the following aldehydes:(More)
In this work, resolution and quantitation of spectral signals are achieved by several univariate and multivariate techniques. The novel pure component contribution algorithm (PCCA) along with mean centering of ratio spectra (MCR) and the factor based partial least squares (PLS) algorithms were developed for simultaneous determination of chlorzoxazone (CXZ),(More)
A simple gas chromatographic procedure has been developed for the determination of methyltestosterone in bulk powders and in tablets. Two new silyl ether derivatives of methyltestosterone have been prepared using dimethylethylsilylimidazole (DMESI) and dimethylisopropylsilylimidazole (DMiPSI). The method is accurate and selective for methyltestosterone(More)
The thermal behavior of some sulfone-containing drugs, namely, dapsone (DDS), dimethylsulfone (MSM), and topiramate (TOP) in drug substances, and products were investigated using different thermal techniques. These include thermogravimetry (TGA), derivative thermogravimetry (DTG), differential thermal analysis (DTA), and differential scanning calorimetry(More)
