Stability-indicating spectrophotometric methods for determination of tazarotene in the presence of its alkaline degradation product by derivative spectrophotometric techniques.


PMID 20878894

Abstract

The stability of tazarotene (TZ) was investigated and two stability-indicating methods-namely, first derivative and a derivative ratio spectrophotometric method-were used to determine tazarotene in the presence of its alkaline degradation product (HD) using methanol as a solvent. A linear relationship was obtained in the range 1-10 µg ml⁻¹ for both methods. By applying the proposed methods, it was possible to determine tazarotene in its pure powdered from with accuracy 99.35 ± 1.410 (n = 10) for the first derivative method and 99.45 ± 1.053 (n = 10) for the derivative ratio method. First derivative and derivative ratio methods were used for the analysis of laboratory-prepared mixtures containing different ratios of tazarotene and its degradation product and they were valid in the presence of up to 70% and 80% degradation product, respectively. The proposed methods were validated and found to be suitable as stability-indicating assay methods for tazarotene in pharmaceutical formulations.
