An extensive literature assessment is done and it is obvious that the methods are accessible for Ranitidine. HPLC is very expensive instrument and are not available in every laboratory. While UV/Visible spectrophotometer is a common instrument of all pharmaceutical analytical laboratory. Spectrophotometric analysis methods available for Ranitidine are tedious, time consuming and not much sensitive in term of precision and accuracy. It becomes essential to develop new rapid and cost effective methods that spectrophotometric determination would be simple, accurate, precise and sensitive. The newly developed analytical methods can be used in research institutions, Quality control in pharmaceutical industries, Approved testing laboratories and Bioequivalence studies.
