AbstractTwo simple, rapid, accurate and sensitive spectrophotometric methods are described for the determination of sulpiride. They are based on charge transfer complexation between the drug as n-electron donor and p-chloranilic acid as π acceptor or iodine as σ-acceptor. These give highly coloured complexes with absorption maxima at 518 and 363, 294 nm, respectively. Beer's law linear ranges were 13.7–341.4 and 1.7–20.5 µg mL−1 for the p-chloranilic acid and iodine methods. The methods were
