A rapid difference spectrophotometric procedure is described for the assay of 5-hydroxymethylfurfuraldehyde (5-HMF) in hydrolysed pharmaceutical syrups. The assay involves measurement of the difference absorbance at 283 nm (DeltaA(283)) of a solution of 5-HMF at pH 8 relative to that of an equimolar solution in which the absorption of the 5-HMF has been destroyed by reduction of the carbonyl group by sodium borohydride. The DeltaA(283) is proportional to the concentration of 5-HMF and is unaffected by the presence of sucrose (the sugar component of syrup) or of dextrose or laevulose (the principal sugars of invert syrup). The accuracy, precision and selectivity of the method are discussed. The limits of detection and determination are 0.78 microg ml(-1) and 9.6 microg ml(-1) respectively. The assay has been applied successfully to samples of syrup containing hydroxybenzoate (paraben) preservatives, invert syrup, simple linctus, ephedrine elixir and raspberry syrup.
