Abstract: During a compatibility study between a formulation containing sulfobutylether cyclodextrin (SBECD) and silicone tubing, an extraneous peak was observed in the HPLC chromatograms. The extraneous material was identified by LC/MS, MS/MS and UV as a previously unreported tubing extractable, o-phenylphenol (o-PP). Several studies were conducted to assess the impact of formulation and process-related variables on the amount of the o-PP extracted, including contact time, sulfobutylether cyclodextrin concentration, fo…
