Results of the determination of the maximum wavelength of retinoic acid with UV-Vis spectrophotometer gained 348.20 nm. The results of manufacture calibration curve, obtained the regression equation y = 1,25835x - 0.09127 with coefficient correlation (r) of 0.99990. Acid assay results retinoic positive samples, sample 1 = 0.00687%, sample 2 = 0.0118%, and the sample 6 = 0.00412%.
