Sofosbuvir were subjected to forced degradation conditions and the formed degradation products were well separated and resolved from the drug and excipients on SunFire C18 column (250 × 4.6 mm, 5 μ) using blend of Acetonitrile: Water (70: 30 v/v) pH 7.0 in isocratic mode at a flow rate of 0.8mL/min at an ambient temperature of 28 °C with the detection wavelength at 260nm. The retention time of Sofosbuvir was found 3.22 min. The linearity was performed in the concentration range of 20-100 ppm with correlation factor of 0.999 for Sofosbuvir. The percentage purity of Sofosbuvir tablet was found 99.98%. The drug was found to degrade under acid, alkali and oxidative condition but found stable under dry heat and photolytic conditions.
