A novel high performance liquid chromatography method for the determination of dimethindene maleate in pharmaceutical gel using hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC) with UV detection was developed and validated. Following optimal conditions for the analysis of dimethindene maleate were used: analytical column SeQuant ZIC-HILIC (50mmx2.1mm, 5microm), and mobile phase consisted of a mixture of acetonitrile and aqueous solution of acetic acid (25mM) and ammonium acetate (2.5mM) (87.5:12.5, v:v). The analysis time was less than 3min at a flow rate of 0.3mlmin(-1). UV detection was performed at 258nm. The method was validated and system suitability parameters were evaluated. The method is suitable for application for routine determination of dimethindene maleate in topical pharmaceutical preparation.

Conditions for determination of: ketotifen hydrogen fumarate, azelastine hydrochloride, dimetindene maleate and promethazine hydrochloride by densitometric method in substances and pharmaceuticals were provided. Maximum wavelenghts were: 228 nm for ketotifen hydrogen fumarate, 295 nm for azelastine hydrochloride, 265 nm for dimetindene maleate and 255 nm for promethazine hydrochloride. The limits of quantification were in the ranges of 0.2-5 microg/spot. The statistical data showed adequate accuracy and precision of developed methods.
