Selectivity Improvement for Spectrofluorimetric Determination of Oseltamivir Phosphate in Human Plasma and in the Presence of Its Degradation Product.


PMID 28293815

Abstract

A simple and sensitive spectrofluorimetric method has been developed and validated for determination of oseltamivir phosphate (OSP). The proposed method is based on condensation reaction of the primary amino group of OSP with ninhydrin and phenylacetaldehyde in buffered medium (pH 6.5). The formed yellow fluorescent product exhibits excitation and emission maxima at 390 and 460 nm, respectively. The selectivity improvement of our proposed method is based on the water insolubility of the oseltamivir carboxylic acid (OSC) the active metabolite of OSP, which contains the same primary amino group as OSP but cannot, condensed with ninhydrin and phenylacetaldehyde reagents. The different experimental parameters affecting the formation and stability of the reaction product were carefully studied and optimized. The fluorescence intensity concentration plot is rectilinear in the range of 2-15 μg ml
