DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW STABILITY INDICATING RP-HPLC METHOD FOR SIMULTANEOUS ESTIMATION OF METFORMIN HYDROCHLORIDE AND CANAGLIFLOZIN AND ITS VALIDATION AS PER ICH GUIDELINES
A new stability indicating RP HPLC method has been developed and validated for simultaneous estimation of Metformin Hydrochloride and Canagliflozin in bulk and dosage forms. The method involves separation on Kromasil C18 column (250mm x 4.6mm x5µm particle size). The optimized mobile phase consists of 0.1% OPA (pH 2.8) and Acetonitrile (45:55v/v) with a flow rate of 1ml/min and UV detection at 25...

A series of six new, mixed transition metal and alkaline earth metal complexes of the general formulation [MM/(C4H4O6)2.xH2O] (where M= Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu and Zn, M/ = Ca ) are synthesized by using bidentate tartarate ligand and are characterized by different analytical techniques such as elemental analysis, TGA, FTIR, XRD, SEM, magnetic susceptibility study, UV-visible spectroscopy etc. All synth...
SEMI-BATCH AND CONTINUOUS CARBOCHLORINATION OF ZIRCONIA IN A PILOT PLANT FLUIDIZED BED REACTOR: OPTIMIZATION OF OPERATING CONDITIONS VIA RESPONSE SURFACE METHODOLOGY
Zirconium tetrachloride was produced in a pilot plant fluidized bed reactor via the carbochlorination reaction of zirconia. Minitab software 17 was used for the design of experiment with response surface methodology (RSM) for both semi batch and continuous processes. The operating temperature (800-1200 °C), reaction time (30-90 min) and mean particle size (MPS) (70-130µm) were chosen as the rang...
