A simple, rapid, precise and accurate gas liquid chromatographic method was developed for the determination of ethanol in marketed preparation of abhayarishta using flame ionization detector. The separation was performed employing carbowax 20 M stainless steel column using nitrogen as a carrier gas at optimized conditions. The column was maintained at 90°, while injection port and detector were maintained at 110°. The system suitability parameters were studied throughout the study. The method has been applied successfully for the assay of ethanol in abhayarishta . The recovery values were found to be in the range of 98.14-104.54% with RSD values less then 0.800%. The proposed method can be used for the determination of generated ethanol content in abhayarishta preparation.
