Abstract

The conditions of escitalopram identification by means of the Thin Layer Chromatography, colour reactions, UV-spectroscopy have been studied. The methods of UV-spectrophotometry and extraction spectrophotometry (by the reaction with methyl orange) of escitalopram quantitative determination have been developed. The relative error of the proposed methods was ±2.1% and ±1.6% respectively.
