DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION OF FIRST ORDER DERIVATIVE SPECTROPHOTOMETRIC METHOD FOR SIMULTANEOUS ESTIMATION DICLOXACILLIN AND CEFDOXIME PROXETIL IN TABLET DOSAGE FORM
The present manuscript describe simple, sensitive, rapid, accurate, precise and economical first derivative spectrophotometric method for the simultaneous determination of dicloxacillin and cefdoxime proxetil in combined tablet dosage form. The derivative spectrophotometric method was based on the determination of both the drugs at their respective zero crossing point (ZCP). The first order derivative spectra was obtained in methanol and the determinations were made at 233.8 nm (ZCP of cefdoxime proxetil) for dicloxacillinÂ and 321 nm (ZCP of dicloxacillin) for cefdoxime proxetil. The linearity was obtained in the concentration range of 10-80 Î¼g/ml for dicloxacillin and 4-32 Î¼g/ml for cefdoxime proxetil. The mean recovery was 100.70 Â± 0.38 and 99.90 Â± 0.36 for dicloxacillin and cefdoxime proxetil, respectively. The method was found to be simple, sensitive, accurate and precise and was applicable for the simultaneous determination of dicloxacillin and cefdoxime proxetil in pharmaceutical tablet dosage form. The results of analysis have been validated statistically and by recovery studies.
