Abstract:


Aims: To develop and validate a new ecological HPLC method for the determination of vancomycin dosage form.

Background: Vancomycin is an important antimicrobial. According to the literature, there are many methods that use HPLC, but none of these methods follow the green analytical chemistry principles.

Objective: Therefore, a green analytical method to quantify vancomycin in lyophilized powder for injectable solution by HPLC was developed.

Materials and Methods: It uses less quantity of toxic solvents, minimizing the costs and optimizing the time of analysis. Water + 0.1% acetic acid and ethanol (85:15, v/v), 0.5 mL min-1, and C18 column (15 cm) at 280 nm were used.

Results and Discussion: The method was linear in the range of 40 to 140 μg mL-1, with a correlation coefficient of 0.9998. It was selective when subjected to acid 0.1M, basic 0.01M, oxidative 0.3%, UV light and neutral degradation in a bath of 60 ºC for 8 hours. The precision of the method was proved at intraday (RSD 1.08%), interday (RSD 0.47%) and intermediate levels (RSD 2.35%). It was accurate with a mean recovery of 100.19% and robust when changes were performed in seven parameters of the method and analyzed by the Youden and Steiner test.

Conclusion: The method can be applied to routine quality control of vancomycin lyophilized powder for injectable solution as an ecological and sustainable alternative that contemplates the green analytical chemistry and the current pharmaceutical analyses.
