Simultaneous Determination of Paracetamol and Mefenamic acid in Tablet Dosage Form by High Performance Thin-Layer Chromatography

Authors(1) :-Dr. Madhukar A. Badgujar

A normal-phase simple, rapid and precise high-performance thin-layer chromatographic (HPTLC) method has been developed for simultaneous quantitative determination of Paracetamol and Mefenamic acid in a pharmaceutical formulation. The analysis was performed on silica gel 60F254 on aluminum plates with Acetonitrile-Toluene 7 : 3 (v/v), as mobile phase. Detection and quantitation were performed densitometrically at ? = 275 nm.. The developed method was validated for linearity, accuracy, precision and robustness parameters. Responses of Paracetamol standard and Mefenamic acid standard were linear functions of concentration in the ranges 36-180 µg/mL and 40-200 µg/mL, respectively.. The correlation coefficient of Paracetamol and Mefenamic acid were observed 0.9997 and 0.9992 respectively. Accuracy was checked by conducting recovery studies; average recovery from the pharmaceutical preparation was 99.88 ± 1.25% for Paracetamol and 99.92± 1.62% for Mefenamic acid. The Proposed HPTLC method has potential applications for simultaneous determination of Paracetamol and Mefenamic acid in combined tablet dosage form.
