A new application of continuous wavelet transform to overlapping chromatograms for the quantitative analysis of amiloride hydrochloride and hydrochlorothiazide in tablets by ultra-performance liquid chromatography.
A new application of continuous wavelet transform (CWT) to overlapping peaks in a chromatogram was developed for the quantitative analysis of amiloride hydrochloride (AML) and hydrochlorothiazide (HCT) in tablets. Chromatographic analysis was done by using an ACQUITY ultra-performance LC (UPLC) BEH C18 column (50 x 2.1 mm id, 1.7 pm particle size) and a mobile phase consisting of methanol-0.1 M acetic acid (21 + 79, v/v) at a constant flow rate of 0.3 mL/min with diode array detection at 274 nm. The overlapping chromatographic peaks of the calibration set consisting of AML and HCT mixtures were recorded rapidly by using an ACQUITY UPLC H-Class system. The overlapping UPLC data vectors of AML and HCT drugs and their samples were processed by CWT signal processing methods. The calibration graphs for AML and HCT were computed from the relationship between concentration and areas of chromatographic CWT peaks. The applicability and validity of the improved UPLC-CWT approaches were confirmed by recovery studies and the standard addition technique. The proposed UPLC-CWT methods were applied to the determination of AML and HCT in tablets. The experimental results indicated that the suggested UPLC-CWT signal processing provides accurate and precise results for industrial QC and quantitative evaluation of AML-HCT tablets.
