Abstract

In this work development, optimization and validation of a cyclodextrin-modified micellar electrokinetic chromatography (CD-modified MEKC) method is proposed to resolve separation of the sertraline hydrochloride and synthesis-related substances. Sertraline hydrochloride, the cis-(1S,4S) enantiomer form, is used as an antidepressant therapeutic agent. A buffer concentration composed of 20 mM sodium borate, pH 9.0 with 50 mM sodium cholate, 15 mM sulfated beta-cyclodextrin and 5 mM hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin was found to be the most suitable background electrolyte. Quantitation of the impurities at levels of 0.1% in different samples of the bulk drug was determined. A comparison of the results with those obtained by HPLC methodology was also accomplished. The method proved appropriate for testing the purity of sertraline hydrochloride in bulk drug.
