The variations of solar activity and distribution of solar energy due to the rotation of the Earth around its axis and around the Sun exert a strong influence on water clusters, as a result of which their chemical reactivity in hydrolytic processes can vary in a very wide range. This phenomenon is well manifested in the hydrolysis of the phosphoric acid esters. 5-Year regular investigations (2015-2019) of the hydrolysis of triethylphosphite in acetonitrile show that the rate of this reaction with all other conditions being equal displays diurnal and annual variations, and is also modulated by the 11-year cycles of solar activity.
