In this present work, a fluorescence method for azithromycin (9-deoxo-9a-aza-9a-methyl-9a-homoerythromycin) determination in pharmaceutical formulations is proposed. The method is based on the synchronous fluorescence (Δλ = 30 nm, 482 nm) produced when azithromycin is derivatized in strong acidic medium (9.0 mol L−1 HCl). The influence of the derivatization(More)
