Nifedipine Fine Granules

Nifedipine Fine Granules contain not less than 95.0% and not more than 105.0% of the labeled amount of nifedipine (C17H18N2O6: 346.33).

Method of preparation

Prepare as directed under Granules, with Nifedipine.

Identification

Conduct this procedure without exposure to light, using light-resistant vessels. Shake for 15 minutes a quantity of powdered Nifedipine Fine Granules, equivalent to 6 mg of Nifedipine, with 200 mL of methanol, and centrifuge. Determine the absorption spectrum of the supernatant liquid so obtained as directed under Ultraviolet-visible Spectrophotometry <2.24>: it exhibits a broad absorption maximum between 335 nm and 356 nm.

Uniformity of dosage units <6.02>

Perform the test according to the following method: the Granules in single-dose packages meet the requirement of the Content uniformity test.

Conduct this procedure without exposure to light, using light-resistant vessels. To the total content of 1 package of Nifedipine Fine Granules add 50mL of a mixture of methanol and water (9:1), agitate for 15 minutes with the aid of ultrasonic waves with occasional shaking, and shake for further 15 minutes. Then, add methanol to make exactly V mL so that each mL contains about 0.1 mg of of nifedipine (C17H18N2O6). Filter this solution through a membrane filter with a pore size not exceeding 0.45 µm. Discard the first 10 mL of the filtrate, pipet 5 mL of the subsequent filtrate, add methanol to make exactly 10 mL, and use this solution as the sample solution.

Separately, weigh accurately about 50 mg of nifedipine for assay, previously dried at 105oC for 2 hours, and dissolve in methanol to make exactly 50 mL. Pipet 5 mL of this solution, add methanol to make exactly 100 mL, and use this solution as the standard solution. Then, proceed as directed in the Assay.

Amount (mg) of nifedipine (C17H18N2O6)

= MS × AT/AS × V/500

MS: Amount (mg) of nifedipine for assay taken

Dissolution <6.10>

When the test is performed at 50 revolutions per minute according to the Paddle method, using 900 mL of water as the dissolution medium, the dissolution rate in 15 minutes of Nifedipine Fine Granules is not less than 85%.

Conduct this procedure without exposure to light, using light-resistant vessels. Start the test with an accurately weighted amount of Nifedipine Fine Granules, equivalent to about 10 mg of nifedipine (C17H18N2O6), withdraw not less than 20 mL of the medium at the specified minute after starting the test, and filter through a membrane filter with a pore size not exceeding 0.45 µm. Discard the first 10 mL of the filtrate, and use the subsequent filtrate as the sample solution.

Separately, weigh accurately about 28 mg of nifedipine for assay, previously dried at 105oC for 2 hours, dissolve in 50 mL of methanol, and add water to make exactly 100 mL. Pipet 2 mL of this solution, add water to make exactly 50 mL, and use this solution as the standard solution. Perform the test with exactly 50 µL each of the sample solution and standard solution as directed under Liquid Chromatography <2.01> according to the following conditions, and determine the peak areas, AT and AS, of nifedipine in each solution.

Dissolution rate (%) with respect to the labeled amount of nifedipine (C17H18N2O6)

= MS/MT × AT/AS × 1/C × 36

MS: Amount (mg) of nifedipine for assay taken

MT: Amount (g) of Nifedipine Fine Granules taken

Assay

Conduct this procedure without exposure to light, using light-resistant vessels. Weigh accurately a protein of powdered Nifedipine Fine Granules, equivalent to about 10 mg of nifedipine (C17H18N2O6), add 50 mL of a mixture of methanol and water (9:1), shake vigorously for 15 minutes, and add methanol to make exactly 100 mL. Filter this solution through a membrane filter with a pore size not exceeding 0.45 µm. Discard the first 10 mL of the filtrate, pipet 5 mL of the subsequent filtrate, add methanol to make exactly 10 mL, and use this solution as the sample solution.
