In present study, the performance of biorelevant and compendial dissolution media was compared to test dissolution of drugs belonging to class II according to Biopharmaceutic Classification Scheme (BCS). The solubility of Ibuprofen, a weakly acidic drug, was determined in various media (water, Phosphate buffer pH 7.2, FaSSIF and FeSSIF) having different pH to calculate D/S values in different media. Invitro dissolution of marketed tablets was studied in compendial media (water, phosphate buffer pH 7.2) and biorelevant media (FaSSIF and FeSSIF). Dissolution of Ibuprofen was found to be dependent upon pH. In all cases, the mean dissolution profiles in biorelevant media were in concordance with in vivo findings published earlier. The method was validated in terms of linearity and precision. The similarity factor in different media was also evaluated.
