Abstract A micro-bore liquid chromatographic method was developed for the simultaneous determination of benazepril hydrochloride and hydrochlorothiazide in pharmaceutical dosage forms. The use of a BDS C-18 micro-bore analytical column, results in substantial reduction in solvent consumption and increased sensitivity. The mobile phase consisted of a mixture of 0.025 M sodium dihydrogen phosphate (pH 4.8) and acetonitrile (55:45, v/v), pumped at a flow rate of 0.40 ml min(-1). Detection was set at 250 nm using an ultraviolet detector. Calibration graphs are linear (r better than 0.9991, n = 5), in concentration range 5.0-20.0 microg ml(-1) for benazepril hydrochloride and 6.2-25.0 microg ml(-1) for hydrochlorothiazide. The intra- and interday R.S.D. values were <1.25\% (n = 5), while the relative percentage error (Er) was <0.9\% (n = 5). The detection limits attained according to IUPAC definition were 0.88 and 0.58 microg ml(-1) for benazepril hydrochloride and hydrochlorothiazide, respectively. The method was applied in the quality control of commercial tablets and content uniformity test and proved to be suitable for rapid and reliable quality control.
