The pKa values of a series of m- and p-alkylbenzoic acids and their related tricarbonylchromium compounds are reported. The influence of the alkyl groups on the pKa values and on the n.m.r. spectra of the acids, their sodium salts, and their methyl esters, and on the spectra of a related series of alkylanilines is discussed.
