Determination of Pantoprazole Sodium and Lansoprazole in Individual Tablet Dosage Forms by RP-HPLC Using Single Mobile Phase
A simple, sensitive and precise high performance liquid chromatographic method for the analysis of pantoprazole sodium and lansoprazole has been developed, validated and used for the determination of compounds in commercial pharmaceutical products. The compounds were well separated an isocratically on a C18 column [Inertsil C18, 5μ, 150 mm x 4.6 mm] utilizing a mobile phase consisting of acetonitrile: phosphate buffer (60:40, v/v, pH 7.0) at a flow rate of 1.0 mL/min with UV detection at 230 nm. The retention time of pantoprazole sodium and lansoprazole was found to be 2.017 min and 2.538. The procedure was validated for linearity (Correlation coefficient=0.999). The study showed that reversed-phase liquid chromatography is sensitive and selective for the determination of pantoprazole sodium and lansoprazole using single mobile phase.
