Abstract

A simple, sensitive and selective extractive spectrophotometric method for the determination of quetiapine fumarate (QTF) in bulk drug, tablets and spiked human urine sample is described. The method is based on the formation of a chloroform extractable yellow ion-pair complex between basic nitrogen of the drug (QTF) and the dye quinoline yellow (QY) in acetate-hydrochloride buffer (pH 2.56) medium. The formed ion-pair complex exhibited an absorption maximum at 420 nm. Beer’s law is obeyed over the concentration range 2.5–25 µg mL–1 with an apparent molar absorptivity value of 2.02 × 104 L mol–1 cm–1. The Sandell sensitivity, limits of detection (LOD) and quantification values are also reported. The composition of the ion-pair was established by Job’s continuous variations method and it was found to be 1:1 (QTF:QY). The proposed method was successfully applied for the determination of QTF in bulk drug, tablets and spiked human urine without any interference. (doi: 10.5562/cca1770)
