Abstract

A key step in the development of medicinal products is the research and validation of selective and sensitive analytical methods for the control of impurities from synthesis and degradation. As most impurities are similar in structure to the drug substance, the achievement of chemo-selective conditions is usually challenging. Herein, a direct and highly selective ultra-high-performance liquid chromatographic method for determining the assay and related substances content in medicinal products containing rosuvastatin calcium salt (RSV) is presented. RSV is used to treat high cholesterol levels and prevent heart attacks and strokes. The most engaging feature of this method was the baseline separation of all organic related substances listed in the European Pharmacopoeia (EP) monograph for the RSV tablets, achieved for the first time in less than 15 min using the Acquity BEH C18 (100 mm × 2.1 mm, 1.7 μm) column under reversed-phase isocratic conditions. The mobile phase adopted for the chemo-selective analysis does not contain buffers but instead contains trifluoroacetic as an acid additive. The chromatographic method was validated according to the guidelines of the International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) and proved to be linear, precise and accurate for determining the content of RSV and related chiral substances in tablet formulations.
