Development of a simple and rapid method for the determination of cimetidine in human plasma by high performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS/MS): Application to a bioequivalence study

Bioanalytical methods for bioequivalence studies require high sensibility and rapidity due to the large number of samples and the low plasma concentration of drugs. The present study aimed to develop and validate a high-performance liquid chromatography coupled to sequential mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS/MS) method to quantify cimetidine (CMT) in human plasma and to apply it in a bioequivalence study. CMT and the internal...

Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis, antimicrobial, phytotoxic, insecticidal and leishmanicidal activities of fixed oil from Viburnum grandiflorum

The present paper deals with the proximate chemical composition and in vitro antimicrobial, phytotoxic and insecticidal activities of fixed oil isolated from aerial parts of Viburnum grandiflorum. The fixed oil was subjected to gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis which displayed the presence of saturated and unsaturated fatty acid. Palmitic acid, methyl ester was found in highest concentration (24.22%)...
