Abstract

A simple and economic solid-phase extraction coupled with UV/Vis spectrophotometric method is described for the analysis of ibuprofen and ciprofloxacin. Following solid-phase extraction from model wastewater samples containing standard ibuprofen or ciprofloxacin, elutes were analyzed by a UV/Vis spectrophotometer at 225 nm for ibuprofen and 280 nm for ciprofloxacin. The assay was linear for both compounds with good coefficients of correlation. This method shows good recoveries for both compounds with 101.0¿±¿9.8% for ibuprofen and 99.4¿±¿11.8% ciprofloxacin.
