A simultaneous separation process of two anticancer drugs carboplatin and temozolamide in their binary mixture using capillary zone electrophoresis method has been introduced in this study. Under full optimized conditions a fused silica capillary was used to carry out the electrophoretic separation using a background electrolyte 50 mmol L -1 acetate buffer of pH = 3.6 which was run at potential 20 kV, hydrodynamic injection 8 s and 60 mbar pressure. The capillary cartridge temperature was

Excellent electrophoretic separation was achieved over linear concentration ranges of 10-240 and 5-100 μg mL -1 with correlation coefficients of 0.9996 and 0.9993 for carboplatin and temozolamide, respectively. The obtained detection and quantification limits were found to be 2.5 and 7.4 μg mL -1 for carboplatin, while, for temozolamide were found to be 1.3 and 4.3 μg mL -1 . This analytical approach was validated and the results were compared with those reported by other reported methods.
