In this study, Lead (Pb), Copper (Cu), and Tin (Sn) elements determined in corn samples were analyzed from three different regions of Sakarya province. A cloud point extraction (CPE) method was used for the metal determination study and analysis by inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES). In this study, optimization processes were performed in cloud point extraction 2-(4-sulphonylamidebenzo)hydrazide-1-dithiocarbamate salt as ligand and Triton X-114 as surfactant. Three different corn samples, soil samples, and certified reference materials (GBW10011 and GBW10012) were analyzed. Recovery values in corn samples were 95.5-97.1% for Cu, 101.8-105.2% for Pb, and 94.1-97.3% for Sn; Recovery values for soil samples were 99.3-104.3% for Cu, 93.6-103.3% for Pb and 99.5-101.6% for Sn detected among them.

Development of liquid chromatographic (LC) method for simultaneous estimation of novel anti diabetic drug Evogliptin and Metformin

J. Chem. Metrol. (2024) in press ; 1 - 10
by Deepanti Gajjar and Dimalkumar A Shah

Evogliptin and Metformin are antidiabetic medications. Evogliptin works by increasing the release of insulin from the pancreas and decreasing the hormones that raise blood sugar levels. This reduces the fasting and post-meal sugar levels. Metformin works by lowering glucose production in the liver, delaying the absorption of sugar (glucose) from the intestines, and increasing the body's sensitivity to insulin. Accurate and precise high performance liquid chromatographic method has been developed for the estimation of Metformin and Evogliptin. Agilent C18 Column (250mm x 4.6mm, 5µm particle size) was used as stationary phase and methanol: 0.11% acetic acid in water (31: 69 % V/V) was used as mobile phase. The method was linear in the concentration range 50-250 µg/mL and 0.5 to 2.5 µg/mL of Metformin and Evogliptin respectively with a correlation coefficient of 0.999. The proposed method was validated with respect to linearity, accuracy, precision, and robustness as per International Council for Harmonisation of Technical Requirements of Pharmaceuticals for Human Use ICH Q2 (R2) guideline. The method was successfully applied for the analysis of Metformin and Evogliptin

Novel analytical method development and validation for simultaneous estimation of curcumin, ascorbic acid and salicylic acid in bulk and its pharmaceutical formulation by RP-HPLC

J. Chem. Metrol. (2024) in press ; 1 - 9
by Manisha Jadav , Vandana Patel and Lalit Jha

A precise and specific reverse phase high-performance liquid chromatographic method has been developed and validated to quantify curcumin, ascorbic acid, and salicylic acid in both bulk and hydrogel. Utilizing a Hypersil BDS C18 column and an isocratic mode, the mobile phase comprised of a mixture of 0.1% orthophosphoric acid and acetonitrile (50:50 v/v). The calibration range spanned concentrations of 100 - 300 µg/mL for curcumin, 50 - 150 µg/mL for ascorbic acid and 50 - 150 µg/mL for salicylic acid. The specificity of the proposed method for estimating these compounds was established through chromatographic peak purity analysis. The limit of detection and the limit of quantification were found to be 18.54 µg/mL and 56.20 µg/mL for curcumin, 10.05 µg/mL and 30.46 µg/mL for ascorbic acid, and 11.39 µg/mL and 34.51 µg/mL for salicylic acid respectively. The accuracy of the method was demonstrated by recovering curcumin, ascorbic acid, and salicylic acid from the hydrogel formulation with a recovery rate exceeding 98%. This indicates the capability of the method to accurately estimate active pharmaceutical ingredients in hydrogel dosage form without interference from excipients. Validation results support the potential applicability of the proposed method for the quantitative estimation of these three drugs in hydrogel.

RP-HPLC method combined with ultrafiltration for simultaneous analysis of Melphalan and Topotecan in human plasma samples

Pharmaceutical analysis still attracts the attention of researchers, and pharmaceutical analysis methods specific to the purpose of the application are needed in routine applications. In this study, the RP-HPLC method was developed for the simultaneous analysis of two different cancer drugs from human blood plasma due to simultaneous use. Melphalan and topotecan are licensed drugs that have been used for a long time. In routine practice, the simultaneous use of these two drugs is limited. However, studies have found that two active substances were used together in high-dose chemotherapy applications. This situation encourages the development of methods for the simultaneous analysis of both active substances in spiked human blood plasma samples. In this study, melphalan and topotecan were analyzed by RP-HPLC in 17 minutes, including post-run, with a gradient elution program using a Superco 5 µm C18 100 Å LC Column (100 x 4.6 mm) when the flow rate was 1.0 mL min-1. The method was linear in the 1.0- 20.0 µg/mL range for both active substances. The detection wavelength was 261 nm. The accuracy and precision of the validated analytical method were demonstrated through intraday and interday studies. The analyte was freed from the remaining plasma components due to filtering the supernatant (after precipitation of the plasma proteins with methanol) with an ultrafilter (having 10 kDa pores). The simple methodology used in this study can be easily adapted to any pre-clinical or clinical application where analysis of melphalan and topotecan in plasma is required.
