B: Ultraviolet Absorption 197U
Solution: 1 mg per mL.
Medium: methanol.
Absorptivities at 257 nm, calculated on the dried basis, do not differ by more than 3.0%.
C: Dissolve about 20 mg in 5 mL of phosphoric acid: a green color is produced.
D: To 5 mL of a solution (1 in 500) add bromine TS dropwise: a yellow precipitate, which dissolves on shaking, is formed. Addition of more bromine TS produces a precipitate that does not dissolve on shaking.
E: A 5-mL portion of a solution (1 in 500) responds to the tests for Chloride 191.
Loss on drying 731 Dry it at 105 for 3 hours: it loses not more than 0.5% of its weight.
Ordinary impurities 466
Test solution: methanol.
Standard solution: methanol.
Eluant: a mixture of methanol and ammonium hydroxide (100:1.5).
Visualization: 17.
Assay— Accurately weigh about 500 mg of Biperiden Hydrochloride, and dissolve in 80 mL of glacial acetic acid, warming slightly, if necessary, to effect solution. Cool, add 1 drop of crystal violet TS and 10 mL of mercuric acetate TS, and titrate with 0.1 N perchloric acid VS to a blue endpoint. Perform a blank determination, and make any necessary correction. Each mL of 0.1 N perchloric acid is equivalent to 34.79 mg of C21H29NO·HCl.
Auxiliary Information— Please check for your question in the FAQs before contacting USP.
