ABSTRACT: High performance thin layer chromatography (HPTLC) offers many advantages over HPLC. It reduces the cost of analysis as compared to HPLC. The mobile phase consumption per sample is extremely low in HPTLC, hence reducing the acquisition and disposal cost. Considering the cost and suitability of analysis for estimation of cinnarizine in bulk and its marketed formulation, HPTLC method was developed and validated. The Camag HPTLC system, employed with software win CATS (ver.126.96.36.199) was used for proposed analytical work. Planar chromatographic development was carried out with the help of Silica Gel 60 F254precoated TLC plates. Sample application was facilitated by Linomat 5 applicator. After sample application plates were subjected for ascending development in twin trough chamber of 10x10 cm dimension, using 10 ml of solvent system. The optimized mobile phase was composed of toluene: ethanol (7.5:2.5 v/v). In post development, the plates were air dried and then scanned densitometrically using a UV detector at 254 nm in absorbance mode. In HPTLC densitogram well defined peak was obtained for cinnarizine with starting position at 0.69 Rf, max position at 0.72 Rf and end position at 0.75 Rf. The optimal Rf value for cinnarizine was found to be 0.72. Performance characteristics of HPTLC method for estimation of cinnarizine in bulk and its marketed dosage form were statistically validated as per recommendations of ICH guidelines of analytical method validation. The HPTLC method was found to be linear across the range 50-400 ng/band. The LOD and LOQ values were found to be 0.05162 and 0.1564 ng/band respectively. The method was found to be accurate, precise, robust and economical for the analysis of cinnarizine from bulk and its formulation

INTRODUCTION: HPTLC is a well-known and versatile separation method which is type of planar chromatography, involves principle of adsorption. It is a flexible enough to analyse a wide variety of samples. It is useful in many ways as it is simple to handle and requires short analysis time to analyse the simple or complex samples
Nowadays, HPTLC serves as a preferred analytical tool for quantitative analysis of drug substances in bulk, from their formulations, from biological matrix, analysis of herbal extracts and standardization of herbal drugs.1
Cinnarizine (CIN), chemically designated as 1-(diphenylmethyl)-4 - (3 - phenyl - 2 - propenyl) piperazine (Fig.1), widely used for prophylaxis and treatment of vertigo associated with meniere’sdisease.2 CIN exerts its anti-vertigo effects primarily on the peripheral vestibular system through inhibition of calcium influx. 3 CIN acts by interfering with the signal transmission between vestibular apparatus of the inner ear and the vomiting centre of the hypothalamus.
Literature survey revealed that spectrophotometric, 4, 5 potentiometric 3 and reversed phase high pressure liquid chromatographic.2, 6, 7 (RP-HPLC) methods have been developed for quantitative estimation of CIN. One HPTLC method has been reported for the simultaneous estimation of CIN and Domperidone maleate by Argekar et al. In referred scientific literature no HPTLC method has been found for the estimation of CIN as single chemical entitiy.8
The objective of research work was to develop accurate, precise, specific and economic analytical method for the estimation of CIN in bulk and marketed formulation. Considering the predefined objective of the research work, cost and suitability of analysis for estimation of CIN in bulk and its marketed formulation, HPTLC method was developed and then validated as per the recommendations of ICH guidelines of analytical method validation.

Analytical Method Development (AMD):
Method development procedures:
HPTLC method was developed for estimation of CIN. The details of experimental work are presented in Table 2.
TABLE 2: EXPERIMENTAL PROCEDURES FOLLOWED FOR HPTLC METHOD DEVELOPMENT
|Sr. No.||System/Method/ Step||Procedure followed|
|1.||Preparation of standard solution||Standard stock solution of CIN was prepared by dissolving 10 mg of drug in 10 ml methanol to obtain concentration 1000μg/ml (1000 ppm).|
|2.||Selection of stationary phase||Silica Gel 60 F254precoated TLC plates were selected as chromatographic layer.|
|Precoated TLC plates were prewashed with methanol to remove adsorbed material, impurities which include water vapours and other volatile substances from the atmosphere when they get exposed in the lab environment.|
|Prewashed plates were placed in oven at 100°C for 5 minutes prior to the sample application.|
|5.||Preparation of sample solution for estimation from marketed tablet formulation
|Ten tablets, each containing 25mg of CIN, were weighed and finely powdered, A quantity of powder equivalent to 25 mg of CIN was transferred to a 50 ml volumetric flask, dissolved in methanol and made the volume up to 50 ml with methanol. It was sonicated for 30 minutes in ultra-sonication bath for complete dissolution of drug. The solution was double filtered, first through0.45μmwhatman filter paper and after that through 0.45μm syringe filter in order to get clear solution. Further, it was diluted with methanol to get the concentration of 250μg/ ml.|
|6.||Selection of detection wavelength
|10μg/ml (10 ppm) solution of CIN was applied on HPTLC plate (suitable dimension), scanned densitometrically over the range of 200- 700 nm using Camag HPTLC scanner 3.|
|7.||Optimisation of chromatographic conditions
|Many preliminary trials were carried out for selection and optimisation of,
1. Mobile phase composition
2. Chamber saturation time
RESULTS AND DISCUSSION:
Standard solution of CIN, sample solution of marketed tablet formulation were prepared as per aforementioned procedures. Selected stationary phase were prewashed and preconditioned before application of sample.
Selection of wavelength:
UV absorption spectrum for 10 ppm solution of CIN (Fig.2) was generated using Camag HPTLC scanner 3 and win CATS (ver.188.8.131.52) software, 254 nm wavelength was selected as a detection wavelength for chromatographic determination of CIN because at 254 nm wavelength CIN was showing maximum absorbance.

Analytical Method Validation (AMV):
The developed HPTLC method was validated as per recommendations given by “ICH guidelines
Q2(R1) for validation of analytical procedures: text and methodology”.11 Refer Table 5 for parameters and procedure followed for AMV.
TABLE 5: ANALYTICAL METHOD VALIDATION: PARAMETERS AND PROCEDURES FOLLOWED. 12, 13, 14, 15
|1.||Linearity||As per ICH guidelines, for determination of linearity, a minimum of 5 concentrations are suggested. By plotting peak area against concentration of standard and finding regression coefficient (R2).|
|2.||Specificity||As per ICH, specificity should be carried out to make sure the identity of an analyte.
The specificity of the method was determined by comparing the Rf value and densitogram of standard CIN with sample (tablet extract).
|3.||Precision||Precision was carried out at two levels, as follows|
Repeatability was estimated by using minimum of 9 determinations covering the described range for the procedure
(e.g., 3 concentrations/ 3 replicates each)
Intermediate Precision was established to study the consequences of random events i.e. days, on the precision of the analytical procedure.
Intraday and interdayprecision studies were conducted by taking 9 determinations of 3 concentrations/3 replicates each, at 3 different times in a same day and on 3 different days, respectively.
|4.||Limit of Detection (LOD) and Limit of Quantification (LOQ)||The values of Limit of Detection (LOD) and Limit of Quantitation (LOQ) were determined based on the standard deviation of the response and the slope of calibration graph. The quantitation was done with the help of equations.
For LOD = 3.3 s/ s,LOQ = 10 s/ s,
where s = Standard Deviation of replication,
s = Slope of calibration curve.
|6.||Robustness||The robustness of an analytical procedure is a measure of its potential to remain unaffected by small, but intentional variations in method parameters and provides an mark of its reliability during normal usage. For inspecting the robustness of the developed analytical method following parameters were purposely changed,
1. Composition of Mobile Phase
2. Chamber saturation time
RESULTS AND DISCUSSION:
Linear relationship was observed by plotting peak area against sample concentration. The calibration graph indicated that CIN produced a linear response across the range of 50-400ng/band (Fig.4). The linear regression data of calibration plot for CIN is given in Table 6.
FIG. 4: CALIBRATION PLOT FOR CIN
TABLE 6: LINEAR REGRESSION DATA OF CALIBRATION PLOT
When the densitogram of standard CIN was over layed with the densitogram of sample (tablet extract) it was observed that the densitogram of CIN was exactly matching with the densitogram of tablet extract as shown in Fig. 5. Therefore the method is specific.
FIG.5: SPECTRA OF TABLET EXTRACT AND STANDARD OF CIN
It was performed at three different concentration levels low (100 ng/band), mid (250ng/band) and high (400 ng/band) respectively within the same day at three different times (session 1, 2, 3).
It was carried out at same concentration levels on three consecutive days, using same homogeneous sample.
The %RSD values for both intra-day and inter-day precision were found within acceptable limit as shown in Table 7 and 8 respectively.

Acceptable % RSD, hence Precise
|Peak area||Session 1||421.6||1327.9||2964.5|
|Average Peak area||426.2||1312.3||2953.3|

Accuracy of the method is reported as percent recovery of known added amount of analyte in the sample. The accuracy of the method was established by performing recovery studies in triplicates of three concentration levels viz. 80%, 100%, 120% by adding known amount of CIN. Results obtained are given in Table 10.
TABLE 10: ACCURACY- RECOVERY STUDIES
|Drug||Level of percentage recovery %||Amount
To determine robustness of analytical HPTLC method deliberate changes were made in the mobile phase composition and chamber saturation time. Effect of these changes on both the Rf values and peak areas were evaluated by calculating the relative standard deviations (%RSD). The results obtained are tabulated in Table 11.
TABLE 11: ROBUSTNESS RESULTS
|Sr. No.||Robustness parameters||Parameters changed||%RSD of area|
|1.||Mobile phase composition(V/V)||Toluene: Ethanol (7.7 : 2.3)||1.17|
|Toluene : Ethanol (7.3: 2.7)||0.95|
|2.||Chamber saturation time (minutes)||+2||0.90|
CONCLUSION: The developed HPLC method was found to be fast, simple, sensitive and economic. The method was validated and found to be specific, linear, accurate, precise and robust. Hence the HPTLC method can be conveniently adopted for routine analysis of the formulations containing CIN.
