The present study deals with the determination of Ferrum Phophoricum and Ferrum metal in some Homeopathic formulations. The method is based on Fe3+ reduce to Fe2+ with hydroxyl ammonium chloride which react with the 1-10 phenanthroline in the pH range 3-5 to form an orange-red colour complex which shows the maximum absorbance at 518 nm. Beer’s law is obeyed in the concentration range of 0.5-3mg/ml. Results of the analysis were validated statistically and by recovery studies. The Percentage label claim and Percentage recoveries estimated were close to 100% with low value of standard deviation and Percentage coefficient of variation.
