Spectrofluorimetric Method For The Determination Of Atenolol In Tablet Dosage Forms
A simple and sensitive spectrofluorimetric method was developed for the determination of atenolol in tablet dosage forms. The method was based on the reaction of atenolol with 0.1 N sodium hydroxide solution in boiling water bath, which shows strong fluorescence having excitation and emission wavelengths 278 nm and 302 nm, respectively. Linear relationship for the fluorescence - intensity was obtained in the concentration range of 5.0-25.0 Î¼g/ml. The method was validated. statistically and was applied successfully for the determination of atenolol in tablet dosage forms.
