METHOD DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION FOR ANALYSIS OF DEOXYARBUTININ ANHYDROUS EMULSION SYSTEM USING HIGH-PERFORMANCE LIQUID CHROMATOGRAPHY
Objective: The aim of this study is to develop a simple, precise and accurate analytical method of deoxyarbutin in anhydrous emulsion system preparation.
Methods: The analysis was conducted using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Chromatographic analysis was carried out using a reversed phase-C18 column. The mobile consists of two phases methanol and water (60: 40 v/v) at a flow rate of 1.0 ml/min. The determinations were performed using UV detector set at 225 nm. All validation procedures were added with hydroquinone as an internal standard.
Results: The method showed coefficient correlation is 0.9978, relative standard deviation (RSD) smaller than 2%, Limit of Detection (LOD) and Limit of Quantitation (LOQ) are 0.599 µg/ml and 1.817 µg/ml respectively. The total amount deoxyarbutin in anhydrous emulsion preparation is 1.964+0.02 % with 98% recovery percentage.
Conclusion: The developed HPLC analytical method meets the validation criteria made by International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH).
