Hydrolysis of O, O-diethyl, O-p -cyan phenyl phosphate (Organophosphorus compound) has been studied in acidic medium with catalyst Cu++ cation and the rate maxima observed were at around pH 6.0. Since the metal aquo complexes are known to exist in equilibrium with deprotonated species and therefore, metal bound OH- nucleophile might be available abundantly even in acidic aqueous solutions.
