Manisha Puranik*, Monilisha Varma
The objective of the current study was to develop simple, accurate, sensitive and stability indicating RP-HPLC method for the determination of per cent drug remained of Amlodipine besylate in the presence of its degradation products in bulk drug, expired tablets and tablets whose expiry date has not been exceeded. Drug was subjected to all stress conditions such as hydrolysis (acidic and alkaline), oxidation (3% H2O2 v/v), photolysis, thermal degradation and humidity study. All stressed samples were successfully analysed on C18 column using mobile phase Phosphate buffer pH 3.5 (50mM): Methanol: Acetonitrile in the ratio of 30:60:10 v/v/v. A flow rate was maintained at 1.5 ml/min and detection was made at 240 nm. The proposed methods were validated with regard to linearity, sensitivity, and intermediate accuracy and precision. This drug was found to be degraded 30-35% in 0.1 N HCl and in 0.1 N NaOH almost 95% and 88-90% degraded when exposed to oxidation, whereas 36-46% degradation in the solid state photostability study. In all stressed samples majorly 1 peak of degradation products were seen and 2 degradation peaks were observed in case of alkaline hydrolysis, both were observed in between 1 to 3.5 min of retention time.
Using Elemental Analysis For Discrimination Of Pinot Noir Wines From Six Different Districts In An AvaPoster
The determination of geographical origin of wine is gaining increased interest by researchers and federal agencies around the world, partially due to increased fraud with regards to place of origin labelling. For wine, multi-elemental profiling of macro, micro, and trace elements has been proposed for determination of authenticity. Commercial wines from different wineries in 5 different neighborhoods within one AVA show characteristic elemental fingerprints. Macro, micro and trace elements as well as elemental ratios contribute to the observed separation, indicating the involvement of multiple factors and underlying mechanisms, including location and soil composition, elemental uptake by vine and rootstock, viticulture and nutrient management, water sources, and small differences in the different wineries.READ MORE
Fast arsenic speciation analysis of wines and rice with LC-ICP-QQQPoster
This method was designed in response to recent and proposed food standards, both international and national, that limit inorganic arsenic rather than total, organic, or individual arsenic species such as arsenite (AsIII) and arsenate (AsV). Analysis time is 10x faster than the current FDA regulatory method, increasing sample throughput, avoided spectral interferences and dramatically increased sensitivity. Validation data from two laboratories demonstrate the method’s accuracy and reproducibility of both wine and rice matrices in a single analytical batch.READ MORE
