Abstract: A simple and convenient spectrophotometric procedure is described for the determination of ampicillin. The method is based on the formation of a yellow ternary complex with 1,10-phenanthroline and copper(II) in acetate buffer solution (pH ? 5.0) and measurement at 446 nm. The stoichiometry and stability constant of the ternary complex were determined. Beer?s law is obeyed in the concentration range 2.5-100 ?g cm?3. The optimum concentration range evaluated by Ringbom?s method, the molar absorptivity, and the Sandell sensitivity of the ternary complex were determined. A variety of pharmaceutical dosage forms containing ampicillin were successfully analyzed by the proposed procedure, giving a relative standard deviation of 1.0%. Comparison of results with those of an official method shows good agreement and indicates no significant difference in the precision of the two methods.
