We examine the possibility of detecting effects of leptonic CP violation by precise measurement of the solar neutrinos within the framework of standard electroweak theory minimally extended to include neutrino masses and mixing. We prove a "no-go theorem" which states that effects of CP violating phase disappear in the νe survival probability to the leading order in electroweak interaction. The effects due to the next-to-leading order correction is estimated to be extremely small, effectively closing the door to the possibility we intended to pursue.
