Determination of Nebivolol Hydrochloride and Hydrochlorothiazide in Tablets by First-Order Derivative Spectrophotometry and Liquid Chromatography
Abstract:Two simple and accurate methods for analysis of nebivolol hydrochloride (NEB) and hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) in their combined dosage forms were developed using first-order derivative spectrophotometry and reversed-phase liquid chromatography (LC). NEB and HCTZ in their combined dosage forms (tablets) were quantified using first-derivative responses at 294.6 and 334.6 nm in the spectra of their solutions in methanol. The calibration curves were linear in the concentration range of 840 g/mL for NEB and 1060 g/mL for HCTZ. LC analysis was performed on a Phenomenex Gemini C18 column (250 4.6 mm id, 5 m particle size) in the isocratic mode with 0.05 M potassium dihydrogen phosphateacetonitrilemethanol (30 + 20 + 50, v/v/v; pH 4) mobile phase at a flow rate of 1 mL/min. Detection was made at 220 nm. Both of the drugs and the internal standard (ezetimibe) were well resolved with retention times of 5.1 min for NEB, 2.9 min for HCTZ, and 8.2 min for ezetimibe. The calibration curves were linear in the concentration range of 114 g/mL for NEB and 0.328 g/mL for HCTZ. Both methods were validated and found to be accurate, precise, and specific, and results were compared statistically. Developed methods were successfully applied for the estimation of NEB and HCTZ in their combined dosage forms.
