ABSTRACT Three new spectrophotometric procedures for the simultaneous determination of pyridoxine hydrochloride and meclezine hydrochloride are described. The first method depends on the application of simultaneous equation to resolve the interference due to spectral overlapping. The analytical signals were measured at 231 and 220 nm. Calibration graphs were established for 1 to 20 microGmL(-1) for pyridoxine hydrochloride and 0.5 to 10 microGmL(-1) for meclezine hydrochloride in binary mixture. In the second method, the determination of pyridoxine hydrochloride and meclezine hydrochloride was performed by measuring the absorbances at 290 and 235 nm in the simple absorbance spectra of their mixture. In third method a yellowish orange complex of pyridoxine hydrochloride was formed with ferric chloride, which absorbs in the visible region with lambda(max) at 445 nm. Calibration curve of complex formation range was conducted in between 20 to 250 microGmL(-1). These methods were validated with respect to accuracy, precision, linearity, limit of detection and quantification. Regression analysis of Beer's plot showed good correlation in a general concentration range of 1 to 20 microGml(-1) with correlation coefficient (r = 0.9999 and 0.9999; CV < 0.858) for pyridoxine hydrochloride, whereas meclezine hydrochloride concentration range 0.5 to 10 microGmL(-1) with correlation coefficient (r = 0.9998 and 0.9998; CV < 0.826). These methods can be readily applied, without any interference from the excipients. The suggested procedures were successfully applied to the determination of these compounds in synthetic mixtures and in pharmaceutical preparations, with high percentage of recovery, good accuracy and precision.

    ABSTRACT: A new high-throughput method was developed to detect simultaneously riboflavin (Vitamin B(2)), pyridoxine (Vitamin B(6)), nicotinamide (Vitamin B(3)), caffeine and taurine in energy drinks by multiple detection. Ten samples of energy drinks and six samples of beverages containing caffeine were prepared by degassing in an ultrasonic bath for 20 min. After chromatography, multi-wavelength scanning was performed by: (1) UV-absorbance measurement at 261 nm for nicotinamide and 275 nm for caffeine, (2) fluorescence measurement at 366/>400 and 313/>340 nm for riboflavin and pyridoxine, respectively, and (3) Vis-absorbance measurement at 525 nm for taurine, after post-chromatographic derivatization with ninhydrin reagent. Calibrations were linear or polynomial with determination coefficients r(2)>0.999. Overall recoveries of the five compounds were between 81 and 106% at three different concentration levels. Repeatabilities (RSD, %) of all substances in matrix were determined to be between 0.8 and 1.5%. Intermediate precisions (RSD, %) ranged between 3.6 and 7.4% for riboflavin, 2.8 and 6.3% for nicotinamide, 2.5 and 4.4% for caffeine, 2.1 and 2.9% for taurine and 0.5 and 4.0% for pyridoxine at different concentration levels. Mass confirmation was performed by a single quadrupole MS in positive electrospray ionisation (ESI) scan mode for all substances except taurine (negative mode). This method offers a good alternative for routine analysis due to its simplicity and at the same time reliability.

    ABSTRACT: Several methods are developed for the determination of two binary mixtures containing cyclizine hydrochloride with pyridoxine HCl (mixture (mix.) 1); and cinnarizine with piracetam (mix. 2). The resolution of the two binary mixtures has been accomplished by using numerical spectrophotometric methods as partial least squares (PLS-1) and principal component regression applied to UV spectra of the mixture and graphical spectrophotometric method as second derivative of the ratio spectra (2DD). In addition, HPLC methods were developed depending on using RP18 column with mobile phase consisting of acetonitrile/0.05 M KH2PO4 (50:50, v/v, pH 4.0) with UV detection at 239 nm for mix. 1, and mobile phase consisting of acetonitrile/0.05 M KH2PO4/triethylamine (50:50:0.2, v/v/v, pH 3.0) with UV detection at 227 nm for mix. 2. The proposed methods were successfully applied for the determination of the two binary combinations in synthetic mixtures and commercial tablets.

    ABSTRACT: Several methods are developed for the determination of two binary mixtures containing pyridoxine HCl together with either metoclopramide HCl (mixture 1) or meclozine HCl (mixture 2). The resolution of binary mixture of pyridoxine HCl and metoclopramide HCl has been accomplished by using partial least squares (PLS-1) and principal component regression (PCR) applied to zero and first order UV spectra of the mixture, respectively. In addition HPLC method depending on using RP18 column with a mobile phase consisting of acetonitrile-water (30:70, v/v, pH 3.2) with UV detection at 305 nm was developed. In mixture 2, the simultaneous determination of pyridoxine HCl and meclozine HCl was carried out by using graphical (second derivative of the ratio spectra) and numerical spectrophotometric methods (principal component regression and partial least squares, PLS-1 and PLS-2, applied to the zero order UV spectra of the mixture). The proposed methods were successfully applied for the determination of the two binary combinations in synthetic mixtures and in commercial tablets and syrup containing several light absorbing excipients.
