A simple, specific, accurate, and precise ultra performance liquid chromatographic method was developed and validated for the estimation of venlafaxine hydrochloride in tablet dosage forms. A acquity TM BEH column having C18, 100Χ2.1 mm i.d. in isocratic mode, with mobile phase containing dipotassium hydrogen phosphate: Acetonitrile (30:70 v/v; pH 7.00 with dilute o-phosphoric acid) was used. The flow rate was 0.75 ml/min and effluents were monitored at 227 nm. The retention time of venlafaxine hydrochloride was 0.548 min. The method was validated for specificity, linearity, accuracy, precision, limit of quantification, limit of detection, robustness and solution stability. Limit of detection and limit of quantification for estimation of venlafaxine hydrochloride were found to be 6.11 μg/ml and 20.33 μg/ml, respectively. Recoveries of venlafaxine hydrochloride in tablet formulations were found to be in the range of 99.3-99.5%. Proposed method was successfully applied for the quantitative determination of venlafaxine hydrochloride in tablet dosage forms.
