Determination of glafenine in dosage forms and serum by thin layer densitometry and high performance liquid chromatography.


PMID 9408836

Abstract

New thin layer densitometry and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) methods are described for quantitative determination of glafenine in dosage forms in the presence of its photo-degradation products and in serum in the presence of its metabolites. Mobile phases consisting of toluene-isopropyl alcohol-dimethylformamide-water (18:3:1:0.5) and methanol-water-phosphoric acid (80:120:0.5) are found to be efficient for reasonable separation and adequate resolution of glafenine from associated substances by thin layer chromatography (TLC) and HPLC techniques, respectively. The methods are used for the study of glafenine purity, stability, bioavailability, bioequivalence and tablet dissolution rate. The results obtained by TLC and HPLC techniques are in good agreement and offer the advantages of reproducibility and accuracy.
