  • Abstract

    A sensitive and rapid extractive spectrophotometric method has been developed for the assay of Rosuvastatin calcium ( RSVC) in pharmaceutical formulations. The method is based on the formation of a chloroform soluble ion-pair complex between Rosuvastatin and Safranin ( SFN ) in phosphate buffer medium at pH 7.2. The complex shows absorption maximum at 518 nm and it obeys Beer’s law in the concentration range of 5-25 µg/ml. The average recovery of Rosuvastatin calcium was found to be 100.94 %. The %CV for repeatability of measurement for Rosuvastatin calcium was found to be 1.956. The intra and inter day precision in term of %CV was found to be 0.481-3.866 % and 1.481-4.139 % respectively. Limit of detection and Limit of quantification for Rosuvastatin calcium were found to be 1.5µg/ml and 2.5µg/ml respectively. A market formulation of Rosuvastatin calcium was analyzed with the proposed method. The results obtained are in good agreement with the labeled amount of Rosuvastatin calcium (98.67-103.33 %) in various dosage forms.
