Stability-Indicating HPLC Method for Posaconazole Bulk Assay
AbstractA stability-indicating liquid chromatographic (LC) method was developed for the determination of posaconazole in bulk. Chromatographic separation was achieved using an isocratic elution in a reversed-phase system, with a mobile phase composed of methanol-water (75:25, v/v), at 1.0 mL min−1 flow. Samples were exposed to degradation under thermal, oxidative and acid/basic conditions, and no interference in the analysis was observed. System suitability was evaluated and results were satisfactory (N = 4,900.00 tailing factor 1.04; RSD between injections = 0.65). The retention time of posaconazole was about 8.5 min and the method was validated within the concentration range 5–60 μg mL−1 (r = 0.9996). Adequate results were obtained for repeatability (RSD % = 0.86–1.22), inter-day precision (RSD % = 1.21) and accuracy (98.13% mean recovery). Robustness was also determined to be satisfactory after evaluation. The proposed method was successfully applied to posaconazole bulk quantification, showing the method is useful for determination of the drug in routine analysis.
