A fully validated UHPLC-DAD method for the identification and quantification of pharmaceutical preparations, containing molecules frequently found in illegal slimming products (sibutramine, modafinil, ephedrine, nor-ephedrine, metformin, theophyllin, caffeine, diethylpropion and orlistat) was developed. The proposed method uses a Vision HT C18-B column (2 mm × 100 mm, 1.5 μm) with a gradient using an ammonium acetate buffer pH 5.0 as aqueous phase and acetonitrile as organic modifier. The obtained method was fully validated based on its measurement uncertainty (accuracy profile). Calibratio…
