A rapid specific RP-HPLC method has been developed for the determination of Lansoprazole impurities in the drug substance. The control of pharmaceutical impurities is currently a critical issue in the pharmaceutical industry. The International Council for Harmonization (ICH) has formulated a workable guideline regarding the control of impurities. The objective of the recent study was to develop and validate a HPLC method for the quantitative determination of process-related impurities of

Lansoprazole, 2-[[[3-methyl-4-(2,2,2-trifluoroethoxy)-2-pyridinyl] methyl]-sulfinyl]- 1H-benzimidazole is an proton pump inhibitor used in the management of gastric ulcers. Chromatographic identification of the impurities was carried out by response surface methodology, applying a three-level Box Behnken design with three center points. Three factors selected were a mobile phase, flow rate, column temperature. Evaluation of the main factor, their interaction, and the quadric effect on peak resolution were done on Waters Symmetry C8, 250 x 4.6mm, 5µm column is used for the development of the method. The mobile phase consists of buffer and acetonitrile. The flow rate of the mobile phase was 1.0 ml/min with gradient elution. The column temperature is ambient and the detection wavelength is 235 nm. The injection volume was 10 µL. The method was validated as per ICH guidelines for linearity in the range of 50-150 µg/ml and the LOD & LOQ values obtained were 0.437×10-4 and 0.1325×10-3 µg/ml respectively which specifies the method's sensitivity. The proposed method was successfully used to determine the Lansoprazole impurities in drug substances.
