Exemestane is used in the treatment of breast cancer such as hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer in women after menopause stage. A novel high resolution, less runtime, reproducible and accurate RP-UPLC method was developed for the quantification of related compounds in Exemestane drug substance. The separation of Exemestane and its four related compounds was achieved on a high strength silica (HSS) T3 UPLC column by a simple gradient program. Mobile phase was composed of sol-A: water and sol-B: acetonitrile (Time/percent of sol-B: 0/40, 4.4/60, 4.6/40, 6.0/40) with 0.5ml per min flow rate. UVdetection was done at 250nm. The developed method was validated as per ICH guidelines with respect to precision, accuracy, specificity, robustness, limit of detection and limit of quantification.
