Abstract The most important steps in the validation of high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) methods are discussed. The establishment of system suitability data and the assessment of peak purity are demonstrated on the example of bisquaternary amino steroids. For the recognition of incomplete resolution of adjacent peak pairs, the absorbance-ratio method in which the ratio of absorbances at two preselected wavelengths are plotted as a function of time in combination with the separation of sample components subjected to various chemical and physico-chemical treatments (stress conditions) is applied. The separation power and performance of the HPLC systems are characterized by the system resolution (SR) and system selectivity (SS). The special demands of stability-indicating methods are summarized.
