UV photoelectron spectroscopy was used to investigate the electronic structure of 10 very strong, neutral amine bases of guanidine and phosphazene type. The spectral assignment was based on the band intensities, Hel/Hell band intensity changes (when available), comparison with the spectra of related compounds and MO calculations. The relative importance of various factors influencing basicity is discussed.
