Development and Validation of Chemometrics-Assisted Spectrophotometry and Liquid Chromatography Methods for the Simultaneous Determination of the Active Ingredients in Two Multicomponent Mixtures Containing Chlorpheniramine Maleate and Phenylpropanolamine Hydrochloride
Abstract:Multivariate spectrophotometric calibration and liquid chromatography (LC) methods were used for the simultaneous determination of the active ingredients in 2 multicomponent mixtures containing chlorpheniramine maleate and phenylpropanolamine hydrochloride with ibuprofen and caffeine (mixture 1) or with propyphenazone (mixture 2). For the multivariate spectrophotometric calibration methods, principal component regression (PCR) and partial least squares (PLS-1), a calibration set of the mixtures consisting of the components of each mixture was prepared in distilled water. A leave-1-out cross-validation procedure was used to find the optimum numbers of latent variables. Analytical parameters such as sensitivity, selectivity, analytical sensitivity, limit of quantitation, and limit of detection were determined for both PLS-1 and PCR. The LC method depends on the use of a cyanopropyl column with the mobile phase acetonitrile-12 mM ammonium acetate, pH 5.0 (25 + 75, v/v), for mixture 1 or acetonitrile10 mM potassium dihydrogen phosphate, pH 4.7 (45 + 55, v/v), for mixture 2; the UV detector was set at 212 nm. In spite of the presence of a high degree of spectral overlap of these components, they were rapidly and simultaneously determined with high accuracy and precision, with no interference from the matrix excipients. The proposed methods were successfully applied to the analysis of pharmaceutical formulations and laboratory-prepared mixtures containing the 2 multicomponent combinations.
