Fourteen linear and cyclic alpha- and beta-aminophosphonates in which the P-atom is substituted by alkoxy groups have been synthesized and evaluated as (31)P NMR pH markers in Krebs-Henseleit buffer. pK(a) values varied with substitution in the range 1.3-9.1, giving potentially access to a wide range of pH. Temperature had a weak influence on pH and a dramatic increase in ionic strength slightly modified the pK(a) of the pyrrolidine diethyl(2-methylpyrrolidin-2-yl)phosphonate (DEPMPH).
