Aceclofenac is [[[2-[(2, 6-dichlorophenyl) amino] phenyl] acetyl] oxy] acetic acid. Photodegradation product of aceclofenac in methanol was synthesized in laboratory. Photodegradation product characterized and identified by Mass spectrum, Infrared spectrum and HPTLC study. Photodegradation of Aceclofenac in methanol gives Methyl- [[[2-[(2,6-dichlorophenyl) amino] phenyl] acetyl] oxy] acetate (Methyl ester of Aceclofenac) which is also reported in British pharmacopoeia as one of the impurities.
