The synthesis of new enantiopure lipophilic crown ethers (S,S)-6, (R,R)-6 and (S,S)-7 containing a diarylphosphinic acid unit has been carried out. The transport ability of these ligands has been studied in an aqueous source phase/lipophilic organic bulk liquid membrane/aqueous receiving phase system controlled by the pH of the media. The transport of metal ions and amines has also been studied. These studies showed high selectivity for protonated amines.
