Abstract A microemulsion electrokinetic chromatography (MEEKC) method has been developed and validated for the determination of folic acid, a water-soluble vitamin, in a commercial tablet formulation. The analysis was performed using a microemulsion containing 0.5\% (w/w) ethyl acetate, 1.2\% (w/w) butan-1-ol, 0.6\% (w/w) sodium dodecyl sulfate, 15\% (v/v) 2-propanol and 82.7\% (w/w) 10 mmol L(-1) sodium tetraborate aqueous buffer at pH 9.2. Direct UV detection at 214nm led to an adequate sensitivity without interference from sample excipients. For quantitative purposes, niacin was used as internal standard. Acceptable precision (<1.2\% relative standard deviation (R.S.D.)), linearity (r = 0.9992; range from 160.0 to 240.0 microg/mL), sensitivity (limit of detection (LOD) = 2.98 microg/mL; limit of quantification (LOQ) = 9.05 microg/mL) and recovery (99.8 +/- 1.8\% at three concentration levels) were obtained. Based on the performance characteristics, the proposed methodology was found suitable for the determination of folic acid in tablet formulations.
