Standard solutions Dissolve USP Mafenide Acetate RS in methanol, mix to obtain Standard solution A having a known concentration of 500 µg per mL, dissolve USP Mafenide Related Compound A RS in methanol, and mix to obtain Standard solution D having a known concentration of 500 µg per mL. [noteUSP Mafenide Related Compound A RS is 4-formylbenzenesulfonamide. ] Quantitatively dilute portions of these solutions with methanol to obtain Standard solutions having the following compositions:
Test solution Dissolve an accurately weighed quantity of Mafenide Acetate in methanol to obtain a solution containing 50 mg per mL.
Identification solution Quantitatively dilute a portion of the Test solution with methanol to obtain a solution containing 500 µg per mL.
Ninhydrin solution Dissolve 300 mg of ninhydrin in 100 mL of butyl alcohol, add 3 mL of glacial acetic acid, and mix.
Procedure Apply separately 5 µL of the Test solution, 5 µL of the Identification solution, and 5 µL of each Standard solution to a suitable thin-layer chromatographic plate (see Chromatography 621) coated with a 0.25-mm layer of chromatographic silica gel mixture. Position the plate in a chromatographic chamber, and develop the chromatograms in a solvent system consisting of a mixture of ethyl acetate, methanol, and isopropylamine (77:20:3) 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, and allow the solvent to evaporate in warm, circulating air. Examine the plate under short-wavelength UV light, and compare the intensities of any secondary spots observed in the chromatogram of the Test solution at the RF value corresponding to those of the principal spots in the chromatograms of Standard solutions D, E, and F. Spray the plate with the Ninhydrin solution, heat the plate at 105 for 5 minutes, and examine the plate. Compare the intensities of any secondary spots observed in the chromatogram of the Test solution to those of the principal spots in the chromatograms of Standard solutions A, B, and C. No secondary spot, observed by both visualizations, from the chromatogram of the Test solution is larger or more intense than the principal spots obtained from Standard solution B (0.5%) and Standard solution E (0.5%), and the sum of the intensities of all secondary spots obtained from the Test solution corresponds to not more than 1.0%.
Assay Transfer about 100 mg of Mafenide Acetate, accurately weighed, to a 50-mL volumetric flask, dissolve in about 20 mL of water, dilute with water to volume, and mix. Pipet 10 mL of this solution into a 100-mL volumetric flask containing 1 mL of 1 N hydrochloric acid, dilute with water to volume, and mix. Dissolve an accurately weighed quantity of USP Mafenide Acetate RS in 0.01 N hydrochloric acid, and dilute quantitatively and stepwise with the same solvent to obtain a Standard solution having a known concentration of about 200 µg per mL. Concomitantly determine the absorbance of both solutions in 1-cm cells at the wavelength of maximum absorbance at about 267 nm, with a suitable spectrophotometer, using 0.01 N hydrochloric acid as the blank. Calculate the quantity, in mg, of C7H10N2O2S·C2H4O2 in the portion of Mafenide Acetate taken by the formula:
0.5C(AU / AS)in which C is the concentration, in µg per mL, of USP Mafenide Acetate RS in the Standard solution; and AU and AS are the absorbances of the solution of Mafenide Acetate and the Standard solution, respectively.
