ABSTRACT
A simple, fast and reliable method has been developed for the direct determination of sucrose in Indian traditional polyherbal formulation samples (Amukkara choornam) through Fourier Transform infrared absorbance measurements (FTIR) at 1051 cm-1 with a base line established between 750cm-1 to 1500-1. This method was validated following the united state pharmacopoeia guidelines for method validation. Sensitivity, Linearty, Limit of detection (LOD), Limit of quantification (LOQ), Accuracy and Specificity were considered. Sucrose was used as standard.
