    ABSTRACT: A simple, specific, accurate and stability indicating reversed phase high performance liquid chromatographic method was developed for the simultaneous determination of atorvastatin calcium and amlodipine besylate in tablet dosage forms. A phenomenex Gemini C-18, 5 mm column having 250´4.6 mm i.d. in isocratic mode, with mobile phase containing 0.02 M potassium dihydrogen phosphate:acetonitrile:methanol (30:10:60, v/v/v) adjusted to pH 4 using ortho phosphoric acid was used. The flow rate was 1.0 ml/min and effluents were monitored at 240 nm. The retention times of atorvastatin calcium and amlodipine besylate were 11.6 min and 4.5 min, respectively. The calibration curves were linear in the concentration range of 0.08-20 µg/ml for atorvastatin calcium and 0.1-20 µg/ml for amlodipine besylate. Atorvastatin calcium and amlodipine besylate stock solutions were subjected to acid and alkali hydrolysis, chemical oxidation and dry heat degradation. The degraded product peaks were well resolved from the pure drug peak with significant difference in their retention time values. The proposed method was validated and successfully applied to the estimation of atorvastatin calcium and amlodipine besylate in combined tablet dosage forms.

    ABSTRACT: A simple, specific, accurate and stability indicating reversed phase liquid chromatographic method was developed for the determination of nebivolol hydrochloride in tablet dosage forms. A phenomenex Gemini C-18, 5 mm column having 250x4.6 mm i.d., with mobile phase containing methanol: acetonitrile: 0.02 M potassium dihydrogen phosphate (60:30:10, v/v/v; pH 4.0) was used. The retention time of nebivolol hydrochloride was 2.6 min. The linearity for nebivolol hydrochloride was in the range of 0.2-10 mg/ml. The recovery was found to be in the range of 98.68-100.86%. The detection limit and quantification limit were found to be 0.06 mg/ml and 0.2 mg/ml, respectively. Nebivolol stock solutions were subjected to acid, alkali and neutral hydrolysis, chemical oxidation and dry heat degradation. The degraded product peaks were well resolved from the pure drug peak with significant difference in their retention time values. The proposed method was validated and successfully applied to the estimation of nebivolol hydrochloride in tablet formulations.

    ABSTRACT: A simple, specific and accurate reverse phase high performance liquid chromatographic method was developed for the simultaneous determination of atorvastatin calcium and aspirin in capsule dosage forms. A phenomenex Gemini C-18, 5 mm column having 250 x 4.6 mm i.d. in isocratic mode, with mobile phase containing 0.02 M potassiumdihydrogen phosphate: methanol (20:80) adjusted to pH 4 using ortho phosphoric acid was used. The flow rate was 1.0 ml/ min and effluents were monitored at 240 nm. The retention times of atorvastatin calcium and aspirin were 5.4 min and 3.4 min, respectively. The linearity for atorvastatin calcium and aspirin were in the range of 0.5-4 mg/ml and 5-25 mg/ml, respectively. The recoveries of atorvastatin calcium and aspirin were found to be in the range of 98.02-100.68% and 98.38-101.42%, respectively. The proposed method was validated and successfully applied to the estimation of atorvastatin calcium and aspirin in combined capsule dosage forms.
