This paper deals with the development of hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatographic (HILIC) method for the analysis of bilastine and its degradation impurities following Analytical Quality by Design approach. It is the first time that the method for bilastine and its impurities is proposed. The main objective was to identify the conditions where an adequate separation in minimal analysis duration could be achieved within a robust region. Critical process parameters which have the most influence on method performance were defined as acetonitrile content in the mobile phase, pH of the aqueous phase and ammonium acetate concentration in the aqueous phase. Box-Behnken design was applied for establishing a relationship between critical process parameters and critical quality attributes. The defined mathematical models and Monte Carlo simulations were used to identify the design space. Fractional factorial design was applied for experimental robustness testing and the method is validated... to verify the adequacy of selected optimal conditions: the analytical column Luna (R) HILIC (100 mm x 4.6 mm, 5 mu m particle size); mobile phase consisted of acetonitrile aqueous phase (50 mM ammonium acetate, pH adjusted to 5.3 with glacial acetic acid) (90.5:9.5, v/v); column temperature 30 degrees C, mobile phase flow rate 1 mL min(-1), wavelength of detection 275 nm.
