Limit of (E)-thiothixene [notePrepare all solutions in low-actinic glassware.]
Mobile phase Prepare as directed in the test for Limit of (E)-thiothixene under Thiothixene.
Standard preparations and Test preparationPrepare as directed in the test for Limit of (E)-thiothixene under Thiothixene, except to use 250 mg of Thiothixene Hydrochloride instead of 200 mg of Thiothixene.
Procedure Proceed as directed for Procedure in the test for Limit of (E)-thiothixene under Thiothixene. Calculate the quantity, in mg, of (E)-thiothixene hydrochloride in the portion of Thiothixene Hydrochloride taken by the formula:
5CHU(516.56/443.63) / (HC HU)in which 516.56 and 443.63 are the molecular weights of anhydrous thiothixene hydrochloride and thiothixene, respectively; and the other terms are as previously defined. The limit of (E)-thiothixene, as the hydrochloride, is 1.0%.
Assay [notePerform the dilution operations in low-actinic glassware.]
Mobile phase , Standard preparation, and Chromatographic systemPrepare as directed in the Assay under Thiothixene.
Assay preparation Transfer about 116 mg of Thiothixene Hydrochloride, accurately weighed, to a 100-mL volumetric flask, dissolve in and dilute with methanol to volume, and mix. Pipet 2 mL of this solution into a 100-mL volumetric flask, dilute with methanol to volume, and mix.
Procedure Proceed as directed for Procedure in the Assay under Thiothixene. Calculate the quantity, in mg, of C23H29N3O2S2·2HCl in the portion of Thiothixene Hydrochloride taken by the formula:
(516.56/443.64)(5000C)(rU / rS)in which 516.56 and 443.64 are the molecular weights of anhydrous thiothixene hydrochloride and thiothixene, respectively; C is the concentration, in mg per mL, of USP Thiothixene RS in the Standard preparation; and rU and rS are the peak responses obtained from the Assay preparation and the Standard preparation, respectively.
