29Si, 13C, and 31P NMR spectra of a series of compounds of the structure (CH3)3-n(C2H5O)n.Si(CH2)mP(C6H5)2 (m = 1-6, n = )-3) are reported and assigned. Using monodeutero derivative of the compound with m = 3 and n = 0 an earlier assignment of 13C NMR spectrum is confirmed, but the assignment in the compounds with m = 4 is reversed. Introduction of ethoxy groups leads to violation of additivity rule for the 13C chemical shifts in the derivatives with m = 1. In all derivatives presence of one ethoxy group in the molecule has a profound effect on 31P chemical shift which is not changed by any further increase in the number of ethoxy groups in the molecule. The changes in 29Si chemical shifts follow the pattern known from other series of compounds. The observed trends in NMR parameters with changing n and m values can be explained by an interaction between phosphorus and oxygen atoms. Possible connections between the spectral parameters and catalysis employing the studied compounds are discussed.
