Four simple, specific, accurate and precise methods have been used for the determination of albendazole (ALB) in the presence of its alkaline degradation product. Method A, a densitometric one, after separation on silica gel plate using dichloromethane: methanol (90:10 v/v) as a mobile phase and the spots were scanned at 232 nm. Beer’s law was obeyed over the concentration range of 1–5 μg/spot. Methods B, C and D, chemometric-assisted methods, including classical least squares (CLS), principal component regression (PCR) and partial least squares (PLS), albendazole was analyzed with mean accuracy of 99.94±0.159, 99.93±0.159 and 99.93±0.158 for CLS, PCR and PLS, respectively. A comparative study between the methods was done showing the advantages and the disadvantages of each method. These methods are suitable as stability indicating methods for the simultaneous determination of albendazole in the presence of its alkaline degradation product either in bulk powder or in pharmaceutical formulations.
