A chemometrical approach was applied to develop a reversed-phase liquid chromatographic method for simultaneous determination of carbamazepine and its impurities iminostilbene and iminodibenzyl in solid dosage form. According to contemporary literature, no method was developed for simultaneous determination of carbamazepine and these impurities by chemometrical approach. The fractional factorial design was used for selection of variables significantly influencing the chromatographic separation of the investigated substances. The investigated variables were: temperature of the column, the percentage of organic modifier, the acetate buffer concentration and pH of water phase. The first three variables were proved to be significant and were optimized by face centered, central composite design. Investigation was performed using C18 XBridge Shield analytical column (50 mm x 4.6 mm i.d., particle size 3.5 A mu m). The optimal conditions for the separation were established with the mobile pha...se composition of methanol-10 mM acetate buffer (pH adjusted to 2.21 with glacial acetic acid) (50:50, v/v) at a flow rate of 1.5 mL min(-1), 25 A degrees C column temperature and detection at 260 nm. Total analysis time was shortened to about 8 min. Finally, the method was successfully validated and subsequently applied to the analysis of commercially available carbamazepine tablets.
