A simple, sensitive and reproducible high performance thin layer chromatographic methodfor the determination of tramadol in capsules is developed using silica gel plates with fluorescentindicators. The system is equipped with an automated sample applicator and the detectionwas performed at 254 nm by using HPTLC. The mobile phase consists of methanol and ammoniain the ratio of 19:1. The retention factor for tramadol is 0.67. The limit of detection oftramadol was found to be 13 ?g/ml and the limit of quantitation is 15 ?g/ml. The method showsgood linearity in the range of 18 to 100 ?g/ml (R2 = 0.993). The intra and inter day assay(n=5)variations in the linear range are less than 2%. A pharmaceutical capsule productcontaining tramadol was analyzed to test the applicability of new method. The percentage oftramadol in the capsules was found to be from 93.5 to105
