ABSTRACT A fast, specific, accurate and precise reverse phase high performance liquid chromatographic method was developed for the simultaneous determination of butenafine hydrochloride and betamethasone in cream formulation. The determination was carried out on licrocart licrosphere RP-select B (250x4.6 mm, 5 mu) column in isocratic mode, the mobile phase consisting of 50 mM ammonium acetate buffer and acetonitrile in the ratio of 60:40, adjusted to pH 4.5 +/- 0.1 with glacial acetic acid. The flow rate was 2.0 ml/min and eluent was monitored at 254 nm. The retention times of butenafine hydrochloride and betamethasone were 4.70 min and 7.76 min, respectively, and the resolution factor was greater than 4.0. Linearity of butenafine hydrochloride and betamethasone were in the range of 100-300 mug/ml and 5-15 mug/ml, respectively. The proposed method is also found to be precise and robust for the simultaneous determination of butenafine hydrochloride and betamethasone in cream formulation.

    ABSTRACT: A critical review of the literature of the analysis of steroid hormone drugs is presented based on 213 publications published between 2004 and 2010. The state of the art of the assay and purity check of bulk drug materials is characterized on the basis of the principal pharmacopoeias supplemented by the literature dealing with their impurity profiling and solid state characterization. The determination of the active ingredients and impurities/degradants in pharmaceutical formulation by HPLC, other chromatographic, electrodriven, spectrophotometric and other methods is also summarized. A short section deals with the application of analytical methods in drug research. The literature of the determination of steroid hormones in environmental samples is summarized in tabulated form.
