Two, simple, accurate, rapid and sensitive methods have been developed for the estimation of famciclovir in tablet dosage forms. Method A is based on the nucleophillic substitution product with Folin's reagent to form colored chromogen exhibiting absorption maximum at 454 nm with apparent molar absorptivity of 3.99×10 4 l/mol.cm and obeyed Beer's law in the concentration range of 2-10 µg/ml. Method B is based on diazotisation and coupling reaction with resorcinol to form colored chromogen exhibiting absorbance maximum at 386 nm with apparent molar absorptivity of 3.15×10 4 l/mol.cm and obeyed Beer's law in the concentration range of 7-21 µg/ml.
