A stability-indicating assay for bendrofluazide using high-performance liquid chromatography

  • S. M. Hassan


A stability-indicating method for the determination of bendrofluazide in bulk powder as well as in tablets is described. The compound is extracted with methanol containing salicylamide as an internal standard and an aliquot taken. The chromatographic column was stainless steel, 4mm×25 cm, packed with 5 μm Hypersil ODS and the mobile phase was methanol-water (50∶50), flow rate 2 cm3 min−1. Superiority of the proposed method to official methods is demonstrated after statistical comparison.
