B: Ultraviolet Absorption 197U
Solution: 10 µg per mL.
Medium: dilute hydrochloric acid (1 in 100).
C: A solution of it responds to the tests for Chloride 191.
Water, Method I 921: not less than 7.0% and not more than 9.0%.
Residue on ignition 281: not more than 0.2%.
Standard solutions To 20 mg of USP Amodiaquine Hydrochloride RS in a glass-stoppered test tube add 1.0 mL of chloroform (saturated with ammonium hydroxide), and shake vigorously for 2 minutes. Allow the solids to settle, and decant the liquid into a second test tube (Standard solution A). Prepare a second solution by diluting 1.0 volume of Standard solution A with sufficient chloroform (saturated with ammonium hydroxide) to obtain 200 volumes of solution (Standard solution B).
Test solution To 200 mg of Amodiaquine Hydrochloride in a glass-stoppered test tube add 10 mL of chloroform (saturated with ammonium hydroxide), and shake vigorously for 2 minutes. Allow the solids to settle, and decant the liquid into a second test tube.
Procedure Apply 10 µL portions of Standard solution A, Standard solution B, and the Test solution to a suitable thin-layer chromatographic plate (see Chromatography 621) coated with a 0.25-mm layer of chromatographic silica gel mixture. Allow the spots to dry, and develop the chromatogram in a solvent system consisting of a mixture of chloroform (saturated with ammonium hydroxide) and dehydrated alcohol (9:1) until the solvent front has moved about three-fourths of the length of the plate. Remove the plate from the developing chamber, mark the solvent front, allow the solvent to evaporate, and examine the plate under short-wavelength UV light: the chromatograms show principal spots at about the same RF value, and no secondary spot, if present in the chromatogram from the Test solution, is more intense than the principal spot obtained from Standard solution B.
Assay Transfer about 300 mg of Amodiaquine Hydrochloride, accurately weighed, to a 200-mL volumetric flask, add dilute hydrochloric acid (1 in 100) to volume, and mix. Pipet 10.0 mL of the solution into a 1000-mL volumetric flask, add dilute hydrochloric acid (1 in 100) to volume, and mix. Concomitantly determine the absorbances of this solution and a solution of USP Amodiaquine Hydrochloride RS in the same medium having a known concentration of about 15 µg per mL, in 1-cm cells at the wavelength of maximum absorbance at about 342 nm, with a suitable spectrophotometer, using dilute hydrochloric acid (1 in 100) as the blank. Calculate the quantity, in mg, of C20H22ClN3O·2HCl in the portion of Amodiaquine Hydrochloride taken by the formula:
20C(AU / AS)in which C is the concentration, in µg per mL, of USP Amodiaquine Hydrochloride RS in the Standard solution; and AU and AS are the absorbances of the solution of Amodiaquine Hydrochloride and the Standard solution, respectively.
