    The mechanisms given in textbooks for both ester and amide hydrolysis in acid media are in need of revision. To illustrate this, benzimidates were chosen as model compounds for oxygen protonated benzamides. In aqueous sulfuric acid media they hydrolyze either by a mechanism involving attack of...
