Abstract:KEYWORDSThe photostability of gemifloxacin mesylate (GFLX) and lomefloxacin hydrochloride (LFLX) antibacterial agents in dilute aqueous solutions (bulk powder and dosage form) was studied by applying the International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) recommended conditions. The photodegradation processes were monitored by UV-Vis spectrophotometry and quantified by HPLC. The structures of degradation products in the aqueous solution have been deduced from LC-MS/MS. The GFLX and LFLX photodegradation kinetic ra… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
