# Why does hydrolysis of OF2 give a neutral solution?

I found this equation on the internet for the hydrolysis of $\ce{OF2}$: $\ce{OF2 + H2O -> HF + O2}$. So, according to me, $\ce{HF}$ must make generate an acidic instead of neutral solution.

But in JD Lee, it is stated that it is a neutral solution. Why so?

• It is neutral -i found in many books – Rafael Nadal Jun 10 '18 at 6:53
• Beyond the ocean there is an island inhabited by two-headed people. I saw this in many books. Should I believe them? – Ivan Neretin Jun 10 '18 at 6:57
• @RafaelNadal we can help you better if you cite the specific books and page numbers. Thanks. – Gaurang Tandon Jun 10 '18 at 7:01
• OK, I got it. The reaction does indeed produce acid, but it takes some time. Before that, you will have just a solution of OF2, which is neutral. – Ivan Neretin Jun 10 '18 at 8:10
