The determination of neomycin sulfate by liquid chromatography using a column packed with a poly(styrenedivinylbenzene) co-polymer and pulsed electrochemical detection on a gold electrode is described. The mobile phase consisted of an aqueous solution containing 70 g/l of sodium sulfate, 1.4 g/l of sodium 1-octanesulfonate and 50 ml/l of a 0.2 M phosphate buffer (pH 3.0). Sodium hydroxide was added post-column. The influence of the different chromatographic parameters on the separation was investigated. The method shows good linearity and repeatability and is stability indicating. A number of commercial samples was analyzed using this method and the results were compared with results obtained with the European Pharmacopoeia method and a previously described thin-layer chromatographic method.
