A new, sensitive, simple and cheap spectrophotometric method for the determination of Neomycin Sulphate (NEO) in pharmaceutical forms has been developed. The method is based on the reaction between NEO and NIN in basic medium. The maximum absorbance was at 574 nm. The conditions affecting the reaction were optimized. Under the optimal conditions, the calibration curve was linear over the range of 0.0002-0.0011 mol/L. The limit of detection and limit of quantification were 5.423×10-6 mol/L, and 1.643×10-5 mol/L, RSD% of seven replicate was 0.8217- 0.8321% and Rec% was between 99.2168-100.8857%. The proposed method was successfully applied to the determination of NEO tablets form.
