Simultaneous determination of nifuroxazide and drotaverine hydrochloride in pharmaceutical preparations by bivariate and multivariate spectral analysis.


PMID 17631041

Abstract

The quantitative predictive abilities of the new and simple bivariate spectrophotometric method are compared with the results obtained by the use of multivariate calibration methods [the classical least squares (CLS), principle component regression (PCR) and partial least squares (PLS)], using the information contained in the absorption spectra of the appropriate solutions. Mixtures of the two drugs Nifuroxazide (NIF) and Drotaverine hydrochloride (DRO) were resolved by application of the bivariate method. The different chemometric approaches were applied also with previous optimization of the calibration matrix, as they are useful in simultaneous inclusion of many spectral wavelengths. The results found by application of the bivariate, CLS, PCR and PLS methods for the simultaneous determinations of mixtures of both components containing 2-12microgml(-1) of NIF and 2-8microgml(-1) of DRO are reported. Both approaches were satisfactorily applied to the simultaneous determination of NIF and DRO in pure form and in pharmaceutical formulation. The results were in accordance with those given by the EVA Pharma reference spectrophotometric method.
