5.2.3.1  Weigh 1.0g of the test sample.
5.2.3.2  Set the oven apparatus. Operate it according to the SOP.
5.2.3.3  Place the sample into the tray and dry it.
5.2.3.4  Set the temperature of oven at 105oC for at least 45min.
5.2.3.5  And wait till the sample loses its moisture.
5.2.3.6  After 45min weigh the sample again by using analytical weighing balance i.e. the final weight.
5.2.3.7  Note down readings on given Annexure-1.
5.2.4        Observation:
5.2.4.1  Maximum 0.5%.
5.3  Assay:
5.3.1        Apparatus:
5.3.1.1  Glassware (according to requirement).
5.3.1.2  Potentiometer.
5.3.1.3  Magnetic stirrer.
5.3.2        Material and reagents:
5.3.2.1  50.0ml of glacial acetic acid.
5.3.2.2  0.1M Perchloric acid.
5.3.2.3  Crystal violet solution.
5.3.3        Sample:
5.3.3.1  0.300g.
5.3.4        Method of analysis:
5.3.4.1  Take a 50.0ml of beaker and take 0.300g of sample in it.
5.3.4.2  Add 50.0ml of glacial acetic acid in it and dissolve by using magnetic stirrer.
5.3.4.3  Fill the right hand side burette with titrant 0.1M Perchloric acid.
5.3.4.4  Carry out a Potentiometric titration using crystal violet solution as an indicator.
5.3.4.5  Operate potentiometer according to SOP.
5.3.4.6  To neutralize analyte add titrant fixed volume (1ml, 0.5ml or 0.1ml) from burette every time note the reading of change in potential difference (millivolts) for each addition in given annexure-2.
5.3.4.7  Plot a graph, volume used v/s millivolts.
5.3.4.8  Find out the END POINT.
5.3.4.9  Peak of graph indicates END POINT i.e. the point at which maximum millivolts. Note down volume used at that point.
5.3.4.10    Perform blank titration without using sample. Similarly, as sample titration performed. Record observations in annexure-2.
5.3.4.11    Calculate volume used by substance by using formula:
Volume used by substance = Blank titration - Sample titration.
5.3.4.12    Calculate percentage purity of the sample by using formula:
%age purity = volume used by substance x factor x 100
                            Weight of sample
5.3.5        Factor:
5.3.5.1  1ml of 0.1M Perchloric acid is equivalent to 38.29mg of Loratadine C22H23ClN2O2.
