Abstract Determination of tinidazole in human serum by high-performance thin-layer chromatography (HPTLC) is presented. It includes use of 10 x 10 cm plates coated with silica gel 60 and chloroform-acetonitrile-acetic acid (60 + 40 + 2) as mobile phase. Quantitation was performed by densitometry at 320 nm. The linearity (1-10 ng), precision (6\%), reproducibility (5\%), recovery (96\%), and detection limit (1 mg/L) of tinidazole determination by HPTLC were comparable with corresponding method parameters by reversed-phase HPLC. A satisfactory correlation was found between the 2 analytical methods. The procedure was used to quantitate tinidazole in patient sera.
