Data are reported on the analytical and physicochemical characteristics of amiodarone, for use in identifying and/or assaying this antiarrhythmic agent. The drug is highly soluble in chloroform and poorly soluble in water. Its acid-base constant (pK(a) is 6.56, and its maximal lipid solubility range is from pH 3.5 to 5.5.
