The interactions of nucleotide 5’ mono-, di- and triphosphates in a multicomponent ionic medium simulating the macro-composition of seawater (Na+, K+, Ca2+, Mg2+, Cl−, SO42−, Synthetic Sea Water, SSW) have been investigated at different ionic strengths and at T= 25°C. A chemical speciation model, according to which all the internal interactions between the components of the ionic medium are taken into account, was applied to determine the effective formation constants of species in the nucleotide-seawater system. The results were compared to protonation parameters calculated from single electrolyte systems. A simpler model (SSW considered as a single salt BA, with Bz+ and Az−), representative of the cation (Na+, K+, Ca2+, Mg2+) and anion (Cl−, SO42−) macro-components of seawater respectively, was also used to calculate the overall complexing ability of the seawater salt towards all the systems here investigated
