(Amino-methylene)bisphosphonates R1R2N-CH[P(O)(OMe)2]2 bearing achiral and chiral substituents (R1 = Ph, R2 = H, Me; and R1 = PhCH(Me), R2 = Me, Bn) were synthesized and characterized in CDCl3 by 1H, 1H{31P}, 13C{1H}, 31P{1H}, and 31P NMR spectra. [P(O)(OMe)2]2 fragments from achiral compounds give rise to complex 1H NMR spectra characteristic for the [A3M3X]2 1H NMR spectra while chiral compounds yield A3G3M3T3XY type spectra. Aspects of molecular symmetry governing the multiplet patterns are discussed and precise spectral parameters are calculated by line-shape iterations.
