ADRIANA NITA, DELIA MIRELA TIT, LUCIAN COPOLOVICI, CARMEN ELENA MELINTE (FRUNZULICA), DANA MARIA COPOLOVICI, SIMONA BUNGAU, CIPRIAN IOVAN HPLC-UV METHOD FOR DETERMINATION OF FAMOTIDINE FROM PHARMACEUTICAL PRODUCTS The aim of this study was to develop and validate a rapid, accurate, and exact method for the quantitative determination of famotidine in pharmaceutical products. The HPLC analyses were performed by using a mobile phase containing methanol:1% acetic acid solution=30:7 (v/v), at a flow rate of 0.4 mL/min.The total time of the method was 10 min, and the retention time of famotidine was 4.16 min. The detection was evaluated at l=267 nm. The method has been validated by using different validation parameters. The linear response of the detector for famotidine peak area was observed at concentrations ranging from 0.1 to 0.0001 mg mL-1 , resulting in a correlation coefficient of 0.99998. The values of the detection limit and of the quantification limit are 0.00048 mg mL-1 and 0.00148 mg mL-1, respectively. The method proposed allowed accurate (with a relative error of less than 2%) and precise (RSD values less than 2.0%) determination of famotidine content in pharmaceutical products and can be used for its rapid quantitative analysis.
