Trandolapril is a drug in current clinical practice as antihypertensive. It modulates the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system that plays a major part in regulating blood pressure. The present study describes degradation of Trandolapril under different ICH prescribed stress conditions (hydrolysis, oxidation, dry heat, wet heat and photolysis) and establishment of a stability-indicating HPTLC assay method. Though a separate peak for the products of degradation was not obtained, the peak purity of the drug was observed. For HPTLC Silica Gel 60 F254 plate and mobile phase consisting of ethyl methyl ketone : acetic acid (8 : 0.25) was used to achieve separation and quantitation was done at 220 nm. The method was found to be simple, specific, precise, and stability indicating.
