Purpose: To develop a simple, fast and sensitive spectrophotometric method for the determination of tofisopam in tablet dosage form.
Methods: Tofisopam as n-electron donor was reacted with two π-acceptors, namely, chloranilic acid (ChA), and 7,7,8,8 tetracyanoquinodimethane (TCNQ) to form charge transfer complexes. The complexes were evaluated spectrophotometrically at 520 and 824 nm for ChA and TCNQ, respectively. The optimum conditions for the reaction were determined and optimized. The developed method was compared with Japanese Pharmacopeia method.
Results: The calibration curve was linear in the ranges 25 – 125 and 30 – 150 μg/mL for ChA and TCNQ, respectively. The lower limit of detection was 8.0 and 10.0 μg/mL for ChA and TCNQ, respectively while the slope and intercept of the calibration curves were 0.0025 and 0.011 and 0.0115 and -0.237, for ChA and TCNQ, respectively.
Conclusion: The developed methods for tofisopam have good accuracy and precision, and comparable to a standard pharmacopeial method. The methods can be applied for routine analysis and in quality control.
