Micellar liquid chromatographic method has been developed for the simultaneous determination of
Atenolol and Aspirin in a bulk drug and pharmaceutical formulation. Chromatographic separation
achieved isocratically on ODS hypersil C18 column (5 μm, 250 mm × 4.6 mm) and micellar mobile
phase of 0.07M sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) pH 3 adjusted with phosphate buffer and 15% (v/v) 1-
propanol as organic modifier in the ratio 70: 30 v/v and ultraviolet detection at 225 nm are used for the
determination. Under these conditions, the studied Aspirin and Atenolol elute between 4.033 ± 0.02
and 6.042 ± 0.031 min at a 1 mL/min flow rate. Parameters such as linearity, precision, accuracy,
specificity and robustness are studied as reported in the ICH guidelines. Linearity for Atenolol and
Aspirin was in the range of 2-12 μg/mL and 4-24 μg/mL respectively. The mean recoveries obtained
for Atenolol and Aspirin were 99.55 and 99.61% respectively. Developed method was found to be
accurate, precise, selective and rapid for simultaneous estimation of Aspirin and Atenolol.
