A simple, rapid, accurate, precise, and inexpensive method for the determination of citicoline has been developed using double beam UV spectrophotometer. Ultraviolet spectrophotometric analysis was carried out on a Shimadzu UV 1800 (Shimadzu, Japan) spectrophotometer, in a 1cm quartz cuvette. Citicoline has absorption maxima at 272 nm and the measurements were obtained against distilled water. Beer Lambert’s law was obeyed in the concentration range of 5-50µg/ml with correlation coefficient (r2) 0.9998. The analytical method was successfully validated in order to verify its proper selectivity, linearity, accuracy and precision for the goal intended and its further implementation for the quantification of the active compound in the pharmaceutical speciality for quality control.
