In the current work, the hyperalkaline complexation processes in the Ca2+/D-gluconate (Gluc) system have been studied under hypersaline conditions (I = 4 M NaCl on the molar and Im = 4.38 mol kg−1 on the molal scale, respectively) and over the temperature range of 25–75 °C by pH potentiometry using H2/Pt electrode and 13C NMR spectroscopy. The potentiometric method was validated at 75 °C. The deprotonation of the alcoholic OH group(s) of the ligand was also investigated. Finally, the temperature dependence of the stability constants of the mono- and polynuclear complexes forming in the Ca2+/Gluc/OH system was determined as well. At this high ionic strength, the formation of anionic complexes seems to be facilitated by ion pair formation.
