    ABSTRACT: A simple preparative liquid chromatography (LC) method is developed to isolate a major impurity in a new bulk drug candidate, 6-bromo-4-(carbamidinemethyl)-5-hydroxy-1-methyl-2-(phenylthiomethyl)-1H-indole-3-carboxylic acid ethyl ester hydrochloride monohydrate (carmidole). The carmidole solution for preparation is exposed to daylight before isolation. Based on the electrospray ionization (ESI)-mass spectroscopy (MS(n)) spectral data of the impurity fraction and carmidole, the impurity is preliminarily characterized as 6-bromo-4-(carbamidinemethyl)-5-hydroxy-1-methyl-2-methyl-1H-indole-3-carboxylic acid ethyl ester. LC-MS-MS is used to analyze a carmidole sample. The impurity, lyophilate, is obtained from the fraction of preparative LC, and the impurity standard is synthesized. By comparison of the retention times of high-performance liquid chromatography, ESI-MS(n), and (1)H-nuclear magnetic resonance of the impurity lyophilate with impurity standard and carmidole itself, the structure of the impurity is confirmed and its formation is discussed.

By comparison of the retention times of high-performance liquid chromatography, ESIMSn, and 1H-nuclear magnetic resonance of the impurity lyophilate with impurity standard and carmidole itself, the structure of the impurity is confirmed and its formation is discussed.
