Development of identification methods of food colorants Е104, Е110, Е129, Е133, Е171 in capsule shells

The practicality of the optimization of methods’ development aimed at simultaneous identification of maximal outfit of food colorants included as a compound of a particular medical agent is shown. Auxiliary substances which are used during the production of a shell of a medical agent, exert versatile interfering influence on the determination of food colorants. UV-spectrums of colorants can be totally different for various chosen conditions for analysis. This does not afford to develop the single method for simultaneous identification of all food colorants and the universal one for all medical agents. With the purpose of saving instrument time, chemical agents and the analyst’s time, it is effective to develop such methods, which allow to identify as much colorants as possible during one analysis. As an object of the research gelatin capsules «soceco » size 0 yellow/brown opaque were chosen. For laboratories analyzing medical agents, the most available and effective for simultaneous identification of colorants, are the HPLC, TLC и UV-visible spectroscopy methods, for that reason the analysis method development was conducted for these methods. In consideration of multi-agent composition of capsule cap body, for the chosen object of the analysis the identification can be done exceptionally using several methods ⎯ with various sample preparation and final analytic operation. Identification methods of the following colorants were developed by us: Quinoline yellow (Е104), Sunset yellow FCF (Е110), Allura Red AC (Е129), Brilliant Blue (Е133) and titanium dioxide (Е171) in firm capsule caps «soceco» size 0 yellow/brown opaque. The methods are based on the combination of using color test and absorption spectrophotometry in UV-perceptible area for capsule bodies, color test and highly-effective liquid chromatography for capsule caps. The introduced methods afford to remove the interfering influence of the sample matrix and optimized for maximal ease of determination of the particular outfit of colorants in particular caps.

Keywords: food colorants, identification, capsule shells, optimization of method development.

On the izosalipurposide-standards in the control of raw materials and phytopreparations from Helichrysum arenarium

The identity and quality of immortelle’s inflorescence and drugs in Ukraine and other countries determined by flavonoids. It was found that for this purpose izosalipurposide, quercetin and rutin are used. In our country, the technology of preparation and methods of analysis of herbal materials and drugs of immortelle with the help of specific chalcone — izosalipurposide were developed.

Izosalipurposide standard is a crystalline powder of yellow color without a specific smell. The powder is well soluble in alcohol, slightly soluble in acetone, bad soluble in water.

Identification of chalcone in a series of samples was adjusted by chromatographic analysis and a number of physicochemical methods.

The comparative analysis of the requirements of a different Pharmacopoeias indicates that for the analysis of immortelle’s (Helichrysum arenarium) flowers should be used izosalipurposide- standard or izohelichrisine (or 6-O-β-D-glucopyranoside 2,4,6,4’-tetrahydroxychalkon) which may contain impurity helichrisine.

The results of the physico-chemical and chromatographic analysis of samples of izosalipurposide-standard show that they meet the requirements of Pharmacopoeial reference standard (PhRS).

HPLC analysis of the samples of izosalipurposide show that

the content of the basic substance is not less than 97 %, and impurity helichrisine was about (1.90-2.20) %.

Obtained from Ukrainian herbal materials immortelle’s inflorescences izosalipurposide sufficiently well characterized and allows objectively monitor the quality of herbal materials and drugs, therefore it is recommended for certification like PRS of the State Pharmacopoeia of Ukraine.

Keywords: izosalipurposide, Helichrysum arenarium, reference standard, herbal drug.

Application derivatization by means of peroxy acid oxidation reactions in pharmaceutical analysis

This article describes derivatization chemistry used in conjugation with either spectrophotometry, fluorimetry or voltammetry methods to facilitate the determination of pharmaceuticals. Generally, derivatization is used in spectrophotometry, kinetic spectrophotometry, voltammetry and fluorimetry, principally to enhance detectability. The section considers derivatization of drugs such as phenothiazine derivatives, antibiotics and alkaloids. For spectrophotometry, fluorimetry and voltammetry sections, data are included giving the structures of the more important for derivatization agents, the analytes, and the corresponding reaction products. Derivatization for spectrophotometry, fluorimetry or voltammetric methods is often directed toward sulfides, tertiary aliphatic amines, amides that are difficult to detect at low levels by absorbance, luminescence, or electrochemical means. On the oxidation by means of peroxy acids or oxone of drugs was the primary focus in this article.

Keywords: derivatization, phenothiazine, antibiotics, alkaloids, spectrophotometry, fluorimetry, voltammetry, peroxy acid, oxone, oxidation.

Approaches to determination 5-hydroxymethylfurfural in medicinal and food products

This article presents the analysis of published data on the methods of control quality and limits of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (5-HMF) in the dextrose-containing medicinal products and food products containing sugars. 5-HMF is the product of dehydration of some carbohydrates. This compound is a marker for the quality and safety medicinal products and food products. Elevated concentrations of 5-HMF indicate overheating of products, their storage at elevated temperatures, long storage, as well as product falsification. In the pharmaceutical industry index «5-HMF and related compounds» is an indicator of the quality medicinal products for parenteral administration containing dextrose, solutions for peritoneal dialysis as well as certain excipients. There are three methods for the quantitative determination of 5-HMF in medicinal and food products: colorimetric method (Winkler method) at a wavelength of 550 nm, direct spectrophotometric method (White method) at a wavelength of 284 nm, as well as the method of HPLC with detection sample at a wavelength in the range 280–285 nm. The study indicates the establishment of 5-HMF limits in food products in many countries that is related to it's toxicological properties. In accordance with monograph of the European Pharmacopoeia for solutions for peritoneal dialysis, 5-HMF should not exceed 10 μg to 25 mg dextrose and 20 μg to dextrose 25 mg if these solutions contain bicarbonates. The content of 5-HMF in juices for children should not exceed 20 mg/kg, in rectified concentrated grape — less than 25 mg per kg of total sugars content. The content of 5-HMF in the honey must not exceed 40 mg/kg, for honey from countries with tropical climate — 80 mg/kg in accordance with the requirements of European Council Directive 2001/110/EC of 20.12.2001. In Turkey the content of 5-HMF in molasses on the base of grape juice must be not more than 25 ppm, other molasses — not more than 75 ppm. Limiting the concentration of 5-HMF in the regulations demonstrates the need for focusing on technological processes and the conditions of storage medicinal and food products containing sugars, especially the temperature factor in connection with toxical properties of 5-HMF.

Keywords: 5-hydroxymethylfurfural, dextrose, analysis techniques, Winkler method.
