Kinetic and product analysis studies of the alkaline hydrolysis of hexakis(aryloxy)cyclotriphosphazenes in 25 vol.% aqueous diglyme revealed an SN2-type mechanism for cleavage of the first aryloxy-side-group from phosphorus: the hydrolysis rate was considerably enhanced by 2- or 4-nitro-groups and retarded by 4-methyl groups in the aryl ring.
