ABSTRACT

A novel and sensitive method for the determination of ceftazidime and cefepime in an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) has been developed based on the fluorescence quenching of poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG)2000-capped carbon quantum dots (CQDs) prepared using a chemical oxidation method. The quenching of fluorescence intensity is proportional to the concentration of ceftazidime and cefepime over the range of 0.33-3.30 and 0.24-2.40 µg/mL, respectively. The mode of interaction between PEG2000-capped CQDs and ceftazidime/cefepime in aqueous solutions was investigated using a fluorescence, UV/Vis and Fourier transform infrared spectrometry (FTIR) at physiological pH. UV/Vis and FTIR spectra demonstrated that ground state compounds were formed through hydrophobic interaction the fluorescence quenching of CQDs caused by ceftazidime and cefepime. The quenching constants decreased with increases in temperature, which was consistent with static quenching.
