Rapid and selective UV Spectrophotometric method for the analysis of Olmesartan medoxomil in bulk and dosage form

tripti sharma, Sudam Chandra SI, Dannana Gowrisankar


A new UV spectrophotometric method was developed for quantitative evalution of Olmesartan medoxomil preparations. The UV detector was set at 256nm. Beers law is obeyed in the concentration range of 2.0 -14.0 µg/ml. The method was found to be selective, linear, accurate and precise in the specified ranges. Intra and interday variability for the method were < 2% relative standard deviation common excipients used as additives in pharmaceutical preparations do not interfere with the proposed method. This method was successfully used for quantification of Olmesartan medoxomil in pure form and in pharmaceutical preparations
