Graphical Abstract:


Introduction: This study introduces an effective strategy, which combines high performance liquid chromatography coupled with diode array detection (HPLC-DAD) with multivariate calibration methods for the simultaneous determination of paracetamol (PAR), pseudoephedrine HCl (PSE), dextromethorphan HBr (DEX) and doxylamine succinate (DOX) along with sweetener saccharin (SAC) in syrup formulation.

Methods: PLS-2 and PCR calibration algorithms were selected for data processing. Based on the strategy, all target analytes were rapidly quantified within 5.3 min under the simple isocratic elution (water: methanol, 20/80, v/v) without a complete separation. The performances of the proposed methods were confirmed by analyzing a series of synthetic solutions including different concentrations of analytes.

Results: The average recovery values were in the range of 100.33 to 103.70%, and the REP (relative error of prediction) values ranged from 1.96 to 4.36% showed that these methods could provide satisfactory predictions.

Conclusion: Novel HPLC methods coupled with PLS and PCR algorithm enable a simple, fast and low-cost analysis of similar pharmaceutical products for simultaneous determination of the target compounds.

Keywords: Multivariate calibration, HPLC-DAD, multicomponent analysis, saccharin, syrup, paracetamol.
