10H-Phenothiazine-10-propanamine, 2-methoxy-N,N,-trimethyl-, ()-.
()-10-[3-(Dimethylamino)-2-methylpropyl]-2-methoxyphenothiazine [60-99-1].
» Methotrimeprazine contains not less than 98.0 percent and not more than 101.0 percent of C19H24N2OS, calculated on the dried basis.
Packaging and storage— Preserve in well-closed, light-resistant containers. Store at 25, excursions permitted between 15 and 30.

B: Ultraviolet Absorption 197U
Solution: 7 µg per mL.
Medium: alcohol.
Absorptivities at 255 nm, calculated on the dried basis, do not differ by more than 3.0%.
Specific rotation 781S: between 15 and 18.
Test solution: 50 mg per mL, in chloroform.
Loss on drying 731 Dry it at 100 for 3 hours: it loses not more than 0.5% of its weight.
Selenium 291 The absorbance of the solution from the Test Solution, prepared with 100 mg of Methotrimeprazine and 100 mg of magnesium oxide, is not greater than one-half that from the Standard Solution (0.003%).
Assay— Dissolve about 700 mg of Methotrimeprazine, accurately weighed, in 100 mL of chloroform, add 1 drop of a 1 in 500 solution of crystal violet in chloroform, and titrate with 0.1 N perchloric acid VS to the first disappearance of the violet tinge. Perform a blank determination, and make any necessary correction. Each mL of 0.1 N perchloric acid is equivalent to 32.85 mg of C19H24N2OS.
Auxiliary Information— Please check for your question in the FAQs before contacting USP.
