This review discusses the regulatory aspects of forced degradation and methodology aspects for degradant investigations. It also focuses on the prediction of degradation products and pathways and development of stability indicating assay method. While reviewing the analytical perspectives various conventional and hyphenated techniques for degradant separation and characterization are described in detail.
