The Fe3+ complex (but not Cu2+ and Zn2+ complexes) of the cross-linked polystyrene Chelex resin is found to be an efficient and selective catalyst toward phosphodiester hydrolysis.  The hydrolysis of bis-(p-nitrophenyl)phosphate (BNPP) hydrolysis by Fe3+-Chelex complex exhibits a pre-equilibrium kinetics with a second-order catalytic proficiency (in terms of rate = k2 [Fe-Chelex][BNPP]) reaching one million at ambient temperature and pH 9.0.
