ABSTRACT:
The pharmaceutical industries and academic institutions are adopting the more advanced chromatographic technique i.e. UHPLC for analysis pharmaceutical compounds. UHPLC has been successfully applied for identification and determination of compounds in almost every area of chromatographic and pharmaceutical analysis. It provides the fast, better chromatographic separation and shorter chromatographic run time as compared to conventional HPLC technique. In this review article author provides the information of development of UHPLC and its recent applications with examples of some of the most advanced work in the pharmaceutical analysis.
