Simultaneous Assay of Olanzapine and Fluoxetine in Tablets by Column High-Performance Liquid Chromatography and High-Performance Thin-Layer Chromatography
This paper describes validated high-performance liquid chromatographic (LC) and high-performance thin-layer chromatographic (TLC) methods for the simultaneous estimation of olanzapine and fluoxetine in pure powder and tablet formulations. The LC separation was achieved on a Lichrospher 100 RP-180, C18 column (250 mm, 4.0 mm id, 5 m) using 0.05 M potassium dihydrogen phosphate buffer (pH 5.6 adjusted with o-phosphoric acid) acetonitrile (50 + 50, v/v) as the mobile phase at a flow rate of 1 mL/min and ambient temperature. The TLC separation was achieved on aluminum sheets coated with silica gel 60F254 using methanoltoluene (40 + 20, v/v) as the mobile phase. Quantitation was achieved by measuring ultraviolet absorption at 233 nm over the concentration range of 1070 and 40280 g/mL with mean recovery of 99.54 0.89 and 99.73 0.58% for olanzapine and fluoxetine, respectively, by the LC method. Quantitation was achieved by measuring ultraviolet absorption at 233 nm over the concentration range of 100800 and 4003200 ng/spot with mean recovery of 101.53 0.06 and 101.45 0.35% for olanzapine and fluoxetine, respectively, by the TLC method with densitometry. These methods are simple, precise, and sensitive, and they are applicable for simultaneous determination of olanzapine and fluoxetine in tablet formulations.
