Packaging and storage Preserve in well-closed containers.
Identification, Infrared Absorption 197 Obtain the test specimen as follows. Triturate a quantity of finely powdered Tablets, equivalent to about 5.0 mg of methenamine mandelate, with 5 mL of chloroform, and pass through a 0.45-µm membrane filter. Evaporate the solvent, and allow the residue to air-dry.
for uncoated or plain coated tablets
Medium: water; 900 mL.
Apparatus 1: 100 rpm.
Time: 45 minutes.
Procedure Determine the amount of C6H12N4·C8H8O3 dissolved from UV absorbances at the wavelength of maximum absorbance at about 257 nm of portions of the solution under test, filtered through a 0.45-µm filter and suitably diluted with Medium, if necessary, in comparison with a Standard solution having a known concentration of USP Methenamine Mandelate RS in the same Medium.
Tolerances Not less than 75% (Q) of the labeled amount of C6H12N4·C8H8O3 is dissolved in 45 minutes.
Uniformity of dosage units 905: meet the requirements.
Assay Weigh and finely powder not fewer than 20 Tablets. Weigh accurately a portion of the powder, equivalent to about 60 mg of methenamine mandelate, and transfer to a 250-mL conical flask. Proceed as directed in the Assay under Methenamine Mandelate, beginning with Add 15 mL of dehydrated alcohol.
