Simultaneous spectrophotometric determination of phenacetin and paracetamol in human plasma for the quantitative assessment of liver function reserve

A simple, economical and reliable spectrophotometric method was developed for the simultaneous determination of phenacetin and paracetamol in human plasma. We purified the plasma samples by solid phase extraction procedure. The analytes reacted with chromogenic sodium 1,2-naphthoquinone-4-sulfonate and cetyltrimethyl ammonium bromide, and the products conformed to Beer’s law over the range 2 to 24 μg/ml for...
