Abstract

A simple, rapid, precise and highly selective spectrophotometric method was developed for simultaneous estimation of Hesperidin and Diosmin in tablet dosage form. This method, involves the measurement of absorbances of Hesperidin and Diosmin at the wavelengths of 285 nm ( of Hesperidin) and 268 nm ( , of Diosmin). The UV spectra’s of Hesperidin and Diosmin prepared in different solvents water, methanol, and acetonitrile and 0.2 N sodium hydroxide were recorded. These two drugs showed good absorbances when dissolved in 0.2 N NaOH. Hence 0.2 N NaOH was selected as the solvent for the method. Two wavelengths 285 and 268 nm were selected which are of two drugs Hesperidin and Diosmin, respectively. Different concentrations of Hesperidin (5–50 μg/mL) and Diosmin (2–24 μg/mL) and a mixture of Hesperidin and Diosmin were prepared, scanned and absorbances were noted at the two wavelengths were fixed for the study. The method showed good reproducibility and recovery with % RSD less than 2. The LOD of Hesperidin and Diosmin was found to be 0.139 μg/mL and 0.048 μg/ml and LOQ of Hesperidin and Diosmin was found to be 0.42 μg/mL and 0.147 μg/mL, respectively. Thus the proposed method was found to be rapid, specific, precise, accurate and cost effective quality control tool for the routine analysis of Hesperidin and Diosmin in bulk and combined dosage form.
