: Spectrophotometry: Doxazosin mesylate: FeCl3:
2, 2-Bipyridine: Oxidation Followed by complex formation.
A simple, sensitive, selective rapid economical spectrophotometric method was developed for the determination of post synaptic a-1 Adrino receptor antagonist Doxazosin mesylate in pure form and pharmaceutical formulations based on the oxidation of Fe3+ion in presence of drug and followed by orange red colored complex formation with 2.2- Bipyridine reagent at Ph 4 which are extractable at 520nm. Beer's law is obeyed in the concentration range 5-30 µg /ml. The developed method was applied directly and easily for the analysis of the Pharmaceutical formulations. R.S.D was found to be 0.4254 and Recovery 99.77% respectively. The method was completely validated and proven to be rugged. The interferences of the other ingredients and excipients were not observed. The repeatability and the performance of the proved method were established by point and internal hypothesis and through recovery studies.
