of relying on published infrared spectra as a basis for identification has been continued.

The use of chromatographic methods has been greatly extended to cope with the need for more

specificity in assays and in particular, in assessing the nature and extent of impurities in ingredients and products.

Most of existing Assays and Related substances tests are upgraded by liquid chromatographic method in view to harmonize with other international Pharmacopoeias.
