ABSTRACT A simple and specific gas chromatographic method developed and validated for the determination of 2-(2-chloroethoxy) ethanol in Quetiapine Fumarate. The method is carried out with a flame ionization detector and DB-FFAP capillary column. The linearity was established over a range of 40-150 µg ml-1 and correlation coefficient is more than 0.999.
