Abstract A reversed-phase high-performance liquid-chromatographic method for monitoring of reactions involved in process development of a key intermediate of antihypertensive drugs, e.g, doxazosin mesylate, prazosin, alfuzosin, terazosin, etc., has been developed and validated. The HPLC profiles of impurities of 4-amino-2-chloro-6,7-dimethoxyquinazoline were used as fingerprints to follow the synthetic procedures in the manufacturing unit. The separation was accomplished on an Inertsil ODS-3 column with isocratic elution using acetonitrile-ammonium acetate (10 mM; pH 4.0; 50:50 v/v) as mobile phase and a photodiode array detector set at 240 nm at ambient temperature. The method was validated with respect to accuracy, precision, linearity, and limits of detection and quantification. The method could detect the impurities at a level of 0.01 to 0.20 microg/mL and it was found to be suitable not only for monitoring of reactions but also for quality assurance of 4-amino-2-chloro-6,7-dimethoxyquinazoline.
