In this work, a reversed-phase ultra-performance liquid chromatographic method coupled with a diode array detector (RP-UPLC-DAD) was developed and validated to determine nadifloxacin, mometasone furoate and miconazole nitrate simultaneously in their bulk powder, in pharmaceutical preparation and in spiked human plasma samples. Separation was achieved on an ACQUITY UPLC C18 column of 2.2 μm particle size (2.1 × 100 mm) via isocratic elution using a mobile phase consisting of methanol, acetonitrile and water with ratio (50:20:30; v/v/v) and 0.1 g ammonium acetate, then pH was adjusted to (7.00) using acetic acid, flow rate 0.6 mL/min, temperature 30°C and UV detection at 220 nm. The method is linear in a range from 5 to 400 μg/mL for both nadifloxacin and miconazole nitrate and from 20 to 500 μg/mL for mometasone furoate. The method was validated according to the ICH guidelines then applied successfully to determine the mentioned drugs in their pharmaceutical preparation and spiked human plasma samples. For plasma samples, the results showed that the method can determine nadifloxacin, mometasone furoate and miconazole nitrate in human plasma samples with high accuracy and precision.
