Estimation of amlodipine besylate, valsartan and hydrochlorothiazide in bulk mixture and tablet by UV spectrophotometry
A simple, precise, accurate and economic simultaneous UV spectrophotometric method has been developed for the estimation of amlodipine besylate, valsartan and hydrochlorothiazide in combination in bulk mixture and tablet. The estimation was based upon measurement of absorbance at absorbance maxima of 359 nm, 317 nm and 250 nm for amlodipine besylate, hydrochlorothiazide and valsartan in methanol, respectively in bulk mixture and tablet. The Beer Lambert’s law obeyed in the concentration range 5-25 μg/ml, 10-50 μg/ml and 5-25 μg/ml for amlodipine besylate, hydrochlorothiazide and valsartan, respectively. The estimation of bulk mixture and tablet was carried out by simultaneous equation, Q-analysis and area under curve method for estimation of amlodipine besylate and hydrochlorothiazide and standard curve method for estimation of valsartan. The results were found to be in the range of 99.6±1.52% to 102±0.51%. Method was validated with respect to specificity, linearity, range, accuracy, precision, LOD, LOQ, robustness, ruggedness and can be applied for routine analysis of tablet dosage forms.
