Abstract Exemestane is an aromatase inhibitor used in the treatment of breast cancer. A selective stability-indicating reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) method has been developed which can separate and accurately quantitate low levels of exemestane. The stability-indicating capability of the method was demonstrated by adequate separation of exemestane and all the degradation product peaks from exemestane peak and also from each other in stability samples of exemestane. Chromatographic separation of exemestane and its degraded products were achieved by using isocratic elution at a flow rate of 1.0 mL/min on a C18 reverse phase column (Phenomenex, size: 250 × 4.60 mm, particle size 5 μm) at ambient temperature. The mobile phase used for the analysis was acetonitrile-water (60:40, \%v/v) with UV visible detection at 242 nm. The proposed method was used to study the degradation behavior of drug under various stress conditions as per ICH recommended guidelines.
