The electrooxidative behavior and determination of zolmitriptan at a boron-doped diamond electrode were investigated using cyclic, linear sweep, differential pulse and square wave voltammetric techniques. Zolmitriptan undergoes irreversible oxidation at a peak potential of about +0.9 V (vs Ag/AgCl/3 M KCl). DPV and SWV techniques are proposed for the determination of zolmitriptan in phosphate buffer at pH 3.03, which allows quantitation over the two different ranges (8 x 10(-7) - 8 x 10(-6) M and 1 x 10(-5) - 1 x 10(-4) M) in supporting electrolyte for both methods. A linear response was obtained in phosphate buffer over two different ranges (6 x 10(-7) - 8 x 10(-6) M and 1 x 10(-5) - 1 x 10(-4) M) for spiked serum samples at pH 3.03 for both techniques. The repeatability and reproducibility of the methods for all media were determined. The standard addition method was used in serum. Precision and accuracy were also checked in all media. No electroactive interferences from the excipients and endegenous substances were found in the pharmaceutical dosage form and the biological sample, respectively.

    • "Validation of a method is the planned and documented procedure to establish its performance characteristics. Typical parameters that characterize each electroanalytical method include selectivity, specificity, range, linearity, accuracy (recovery), LOD, LOQ, precision, robustness, and ruggedness [45] [46] [47] [48] [49] [50] [51] [52]. They define what the method can do under optimized conditions of matrix solution, instrumental settings , active ingredient isolation, and other experimental features. "

    ABSTRACT: Until now after the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) was discovered as the then tentative aetiological agent of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), exactly 25 anti-HIV compounds have been formally approved for clinical use in the treatment of AIDS. These compounds fall into six categories: nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs: zidovudine, didanosine, zalcitabine, lamivudine, abacavir, stavudine, and emtricitabine), nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NtRTIs: tenofovir), nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs: efavirenz, nevirapine, delavirdine, and etravirine), protease inhibitors (PIs: ritonavir, indinavir, saquinavir, nelfinavir, amprenavir, lopinavir, fosamprenavir, atazanavir, tipranavir and darunavir), fusion inhibitors (FIs: enfuvirtide), coreceptor inhibitors (CRIs: maraviroc), and integrase inhibitors (INIs: raltegravir). The present paper submitted the use of various electroanalytical techniques for the determination of anti-HIV drugs. This paper covers the time period from 1990 to 2010 including voltammetric techniques that were reported. Presented application concerns analysis of anti-HIV drugs from pharmaceutical dosage forms and biological samples.

    ABSTRACT: The electrochemical behaviour of indole and a group of indole-containing compounds with a substituent at the C3 position, indol-3-acetamide (IAM), tryptamine, gramine, indole acetic acid (IAA), indole propionic acid (IPA), indole butyric acid (IBA) and tryptophan, was investigated at a glassy carbon electrode, in order to determine their oxidation pathways. Indole undergoes one irreversible pH dependent oxidation, whereas the oxidation process of indole derivatives was more complex, a two step, the oxidation at C2 position on the pyrrole ring followed by the hydroxylation at the C7 position of the benzene moiety of indoles, irreversible pH dependent oxidation.
