Visual Colorimetric and Colorimetric Determination of Cefuroxime

Cefuroxime is a cephalosporin antibiotic with a wide spectrum of antibacterial activity for gram-positive and gram-negative microorganisms. It is in the list of vital and essential drugs for medical use. Currently, spectroscopic, chromatographic, electrochemical methods are used to determine cefuroxime. In current study we developed test agents in the form of indicator papers and powders with an immobilized Fehling reagent for the rapid determination of cefuroxime. Cellulose paper and silica gel were used as a solid matrix to create testing means.

Research of a State of Some the Cephalosporin Antibiotics in Water Environments by Spectrophotometry

An express authenticity estimation of some cephalosporin antibiotics of II and III generations are developed by spectrophotometry. An identity of drugs such as cefotaxime (Russia) and claforan (France), cefuroxime (Russia) and cefuroxime axetil (England) is shown.
