11.2 PHYSICAL ANALYSIS USP/BP/BP/Inhouse
11.2.1 Test of Physical Form:
Check the sample and confirm its physical form; it should be crystalline powder.
11.2.2 Test of Colour:
Confirm the colour of the material by comparing with standard from colour chart; it should be white.
11.2.3 Test of Odour
Check the odour of the sample; it should be odourless to almost odourless.
11.2.4 Test of Solubility
- Check the solubility of the sample in water and chloroform.
- It should be freely soluble in water and chloroform.
11.2.5 Test of Melting point:
Take the powdered sample in the capillary tube meant for the purpose, put it in the Melting Point Apparatus. Check the temperature at which the powdered sample melts; melting point should be between 130-135°C.
11.2.6 Test of Loss on Drying:
Weigh accurately 10 g of sample on moisture balance. Adjust the temperature at 105°C, start drying the sample. At the end balance show percentage loss of moisture; moisture contents should not be more than 0.5%.
11.2.7 Test of Clarity & Colour:
Dissolve 10 g of the sample in 100 ml of distilled water; the solution should be clear and colourless.
11.2.8 Bulk Density:
Take sample in the measuring cylinder, the surface level of the sample in the cylinder should be even, note the volume without tapping, it should be between 0.500 – 0.550 g/ml.
11.2.9 Tapped Density:
Take sample in the measuring cylinder, the surface level of the sample in the cylinder should be even, note the volume with tapping, it should be between 0.650 – 0.750 gm/ml.
11.3 Record the result of Physical Analysis on qualty report.
11.4 CHEMICAL ANALYSIS: USP/BP/BP/Inhouse
11.4.1 Examination of Chlorpheniramine Maleate by IR spectrum:
Take dried sample to 5mg of Chlorpheniramine Maleate and thoroughly mix with 95mg of dried standard of potassium bromide in pastel mortar.
Fill Macro cups with provided funnel like instrument and draw the spectrum it should be complies the standard spectrum.
11.4.2 Identification Test of Chlorpheniramine Maleate:
Weigh accurately on analytical balance 50 mg of the powdered sample, put it in the test tube, add 5 ml of distilled water, 1 ml of trinitrophenol TS; white precipitate should produce.
11.4.3 Contents of Chlorpheniramine:
