      HPTLC separation of a hepatoprotective combination in pharmaceutical formulation and human plasma
      M.A. MAGDY*, R.M. ABDELFATAH (*Pharm. Anal. Chem. Dep., El shaheed Ahmed Hegazy Street, Faculty of Pharmacy, Beni Suef Univ., Beni Suef 90706, Egypt,

      J. of Chromatogr. Sci. 58 (5), 411 - 417 (2020). Analysis of a binary mixture of silymarin (SR) and vitamin E (VE) acetate in their pure forms, pharmaceutical formulation and spiked human plasma, by HPTLC on silica gel with hexane - acetone - formic acid 140:60:3, detection at UV 215 nm, and quantification by densitometry. The linearity was 0.2 - 2.5 and 0.2 - 4.5 μg/band for SR and VE, respectively. Accuracy was 99.9 ± 1.2 % and 100.2 ± 1.6 % for SR and VE, respectively. The method was successfullly used for the determination of the studied drugs in their pharmaceutical formulation without any interference from excipients, and in spiked plasma samples. Statistical comparison of the results obtained by this HPTLC method showed no significant difference to the results obtained by the reported HPLC method.
