Abstract The present paper describes the development of a stability indicating reversed phase liquid chromatographic (RPLC) method for oxcarbazepine in the presence of its impurities and degradation products generated from forced decomposition studies. The drug substance was subjected to stress conditions of hydrolysis, oxidation, photolysis and thermal degradation. The degradation of oxcarbazepine was observed under base hydrolysis. The drug was found to be stable to other stress conditions attempted. Successful separation of the drug from the synthetic impurities and degradation product formed under stress conditions was achieved on a C18 column using mixture of aqueous 0.02 M potassium dihydrogen phosphate-acetonitrile-methanol (45:35:20, v/v/v) as mobile phase. The developed HPLC method was validated with respect to linearity, accuracy, precision, specificity and robustness. The developed HPLC method to determine the related substances and assay determination of oxcarbazepine can be used to evaluate the quality of regular production samples. It can be also used to test the stability samples of oxcarbazepine.
