to proceed at room temperature (25±5oC). The reaction was achieved instantaneously. The solutions were diluted up to the mark of the calibration flask with methanol. The absorbance of the resulting solutions was measured at the wavelengths of maximum absorption 455 nm against reagent blanks treated similarly. Beer‟s law is obeyed in the concentration of 20-100 μg/ml of tramadol hydrochloride. Calibration curve was plotted from absorbance values against concentration of drug (Figure 1).

Twenty tablets of tramadol hydrochloride were accurately weighed and powdered. Tablet powder equivalent to 100 mg of tramadol hydrochloride was Regression equation (Y = a + bC) Y=0.004x+0.002 dissolved in 50 mL of methanol, sonicated for 15 minutes, filtered and washed with methanol. The filtrate and washings were combined and the final volume was made to 100 mL with methanol. The solution was suitably diluted and analyzed as given under the assay procedure for bulk samples. The results are represented in Table 2.

Results and Discussion

The method was based on the charge transfer reactions of tramadol hydrochloride as n-electron donor with acceptor, 2,5-dichloro-3,6-dihydroxy-1,4-benzoquinone. Where, Y is the absorbance and C concentration in μg / The absorbance of the highly intensive coloured solution was measured at 455 nm against reagent blank treated similarly. The conditions required for the formation of Table 2 Assay of tramadol hydrochloride in tablet
colored complexes were optimized. Statistical analysis was carried out and the results were found to be satisfactory. The optical characteristics such as absorption maxima, Beer‟s law limits, molar absorptivity and Sand ell‟s sensitivity are presented in Table 1. The

Relative standard deviation values and standard deviation were low that indicates the reproducibility of the proposed methods. In the student‟s „t‟ tests, no significant differences were found between the calculated and theoretical values of both the proposed methods at 95% Che Sci Rev Lett 2013, 1(3), 168–171 Article CS25204211 Chemical Science Review and Letters ISSN 2278-6783 Amount of drug in µg/ ml
