Abstract:Derivative UV-spectrophotometric and liquid chromatographic (LC) methods for fleroxacin determination were validated. In the spectrophotometric assay, first-, second-, third-, and fourth-order measurements were applied with the use of peak–zero and peak–peak techniques. The linear correlation between amplitude of the peak and concentration of the examined drug ranged from 2.0 to 12.0 μg/mL. An isocratic LC analysis was performed on a Purospher ODS column with an acidic mobile phase containing tetrabutylammonium hydroxide. Measurements were made at a wavelength of 285 nm with 4-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) as internal standard. The calibration curve was linear (r = 0.9999) in the studied range of concentration (1.0–10.0 μg/mL). The accuracy (mean recovery, about 100%), precision (relative standard deviation <1%), selectivity, and sensitivity of the elaborated methods were satisfactory.
