Abstract Several spectrophotometric and HPLC methods are presented for the determination of fenofibrate, vinpocetine and their hydrolysis products. The resolution of either fenofibrate or vinpocetine and their hydrolysis products has been accomplished by using numerical spectrophotometric methods as partial least squares (PLS-1) and principal component regression (PCR) applied to UV spectra; and graphical spectrophotometric methods as first derivative of ratio spectra (1DD) or first (1D) and second (2D) derivative spectrophotometry for vinpocetine and fenofibrate, respectively. In addition HPLC methods were developed using ODS column with mobile phase consisting of acetonitrile-water (80:20, v/v, pH 4) with UV detection at 287 nm for fenofibrate and a mobile phase consisting of acetonitrile-10 mM KH2PO4, containing 0.1\% diethylamine (60:40, v/v, pH 4.6) with UV detection at 270 nm for vinpocetine. The proposed methods were successfully applied for the determination of each drug and its hydrolysis product in laboratory-prepared mixture and pharmaceutical preparation. The proposed HPLC and derivative spectrophotometric methods were used to investigate the kinetics of acidic and alkaline hydrolytic processes of each drug. The pH-rate profile of hydrolysis of each drug in Britton-Robinson buffer solutions was studied.
