Analysis of Ambroxol Hydrochloride in Flavamed® Tablets by Means of Spectroscopic Absorption Methods
AbstractAmbroxol hydrochloride (AMB), (1s,4s)-4-((2-amino-3,5-dibromocyclohexyl)methylamino) cyclohexanol hydrochloride, is semi - synthetic derivative of vasicine obtained from Indian shrub Adhatoda vasica. It is a metabolic product of bromhexin and it is used as broncho secretolytic and an expectorant drug. Analysis of Flavamed® tablets, in which ambroxol hydrochloride (AMB) is an active component, was performed. UV/VIS spectrophotometry and atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) were used. Direct and indirect UV/VIS spectrophotometric methods were used for quantitative analysis of AMB and the following recovery value results were obtained: 100,16% and 95,23%, successively. Content of heavy metals in Flavamed® tablets was determined by atomic absorption spetroscopy.
