Abstract: An RP-LC method for the simultaneous determination of ascorbic acid, paracetamol and caffeine in a tablet matrix is described. The mobile phase was a mixture of methanol-NaH2PO4 (17:83 pH 4.25 ±0.05) and stationary phase Aquapore RP-300. Total chromatographic time was approximately 8 minutes and the method found to be cost effective. The method was used to analyze some brands of multi-component anti cold preparations on the local market. Results were validated using the standard UV spectrophotometric methods for the assay of the individual components of these drugs.
