  • 2. INTRODUCTIONAnalytical Chemistry Analytical chemistry may be defined as the science and art of determining the composition of materials in terms of the elements of compound contained. By means of analytical techniques both qualitative and quantitative analysis can be done.Qualitative methods :-Quantitative analysis:-Classification of analytical methods:- Spectral methods Chromatographic methods Electrochemical methods Miscellaneous methods Hyphenated methods
  • 3. CHROMATOGRAPHY Chromatography is a technique used for the separation, purification and identification of the compounds of mixtures by their continuous distribution, between two phases. One is stationary phase and the other is mobile phase.Principles of Chromatographic Separation: Adsorption chromatography: a solid stationary phase and a liquid or gaseous mobile phase. Partition chromatography: a liquid stationary phase and a liquid or gaseous mobile phase. Size exclusion chromatography: an inert gel which acts as a molecular sieve, and liquid mobile phase. Ion exchange chromatography: a solid polymeric stationary phase containing replaceable ions.

Valganciclovir shows maximum absorbance at 254nm in methanol. Beer’s law was obeyed within the concentration range of 5-30 mcg/ml with the correlation coefficient of 0.9999. The standard plot was clearly showed a straight line passing through the origin. The method was extended to pharmaceutical formulations. B.dagontopa et al., reported a rapid, sensitive, and specific reverse phase high performance liquid chromatography with diode array detection procedure for the simultaneous determination of abacavir, efavirenz and valganciclovir in spiked human serum is described. Separation was performed on a 5µm waters spherisorb column (256 4.6 mm ID) with acetonitrile: methanol: KH2PO4 (at PH 5.0) (40:20:40 v/v/v) isocratic elution at a flow rate of 1.0 ml min-1. Calibration curves were constructed in the range of 50-30,000 ng mL-1 for abacavir and efavirenz, and 10-30,000 ng mL-1 for serum samples. The limit of detection and limit of quantification concentration of the HPLC method were 3.80 and 12.68 ng mL-1 for abacavir, 2.61 and 8.69 ng mL-1 for efavirenz, 1.30 and 4.32 ng ml-1 for valganciclovir.
