Abstract

Five simple, sensitive, accurate and precise spectrophotometric methods were developed for the simultaneous determination of Nebivolol hydrochloride (NEB) and Valsartan (VAL) in their binary mixtures and in pharmaceutical dosage form. The methods included Ratio Difference, First Derivative ratio, Mean Centering of ratio spectra, Bivariate and H-Point Standard additions method. The calibration curves were linear over the concentration range of 10-70 μg/ml and 20-60 μg/ml for NEB and VAL, respectively for Ratio Difference and First Derivative ratio method and over the concentration range of 10-70 μg/ml and 10-60 μg/ml for NEB and VAL, respectively for Mean Centering of ratio spectra, Bivariate and H-Point Standard additions method. These methods were examined by analyzing synthetic mixtures of the studied drugs and they were utilized to determine the studied drugs in their commercial pharmaceutical preparation. All methods were validated as per ICH guidelines and accuracy, robustness, repeatability and precision were found to be within the acceptable limits. The results of the proposed methods were compared to the results of reported methods with no significant difference between them.
