A reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatographic (RP-HPLC) method has been developed for separation of carvedilol and its impurities from Karvileks tablets. The best separation was achieved on a 100 mm x 4.6 mm, 5 mu m particle size, Chromolit RP 8e column. Use of acetonitrile-water, 45:55 (v/v), adjusted to pH 2.5 with formic acid, as mobile phase at a flow rate of 0.5 mL min(-1) enabled acceptable resolution of carvedilol, in large excess, from possible impurities, in a short elution time. UV detection was performed at 280 nm. Linearity, accuracy, precision, selectivity, and robustness were validated and found to be satisfactory. Overall, the proposed method was found to be highly sensitive, suitable, and accurate for quantitative determination of carvedilol and its impurities in dosage forms and in raw materials.
