The main thrust of the paper was to develop and validate a simple, precise high performance thin-layer chromatographic (HPTLC) method for estimation of tapentadol hydrochloride in tablet dosage form. Chromatography was performed on silica gel 60 F254 plates with Chloroform: Acetone: Ammonia (2.5: 2.4: 0.1 v/v/v) as mobile phase. This mobile phase system gave a good resolution for tapentadol hydrochloride (Rf value of 0.49 ± 0.02). Detection and quantification were carried out at 272 nm. The linear regression data for the calibration plot showed a good relationship with r=0.999. The limits of detection and quantification were 62.68 and 189.94ng/spot for tapentadol hydrochloride. The amounts of the drugs in the marketed formulation were 99.98%.
