Xylene isomers are expected to degrade by
indirect photolysis in air, with an estimated half-life of around 1 day,
by reaction with hydroxyl radicals (Atkinson 1985). These data indicate

removal from the environment.
The xylene isomers are not expected to
undergo hydrolysis in the environment due to a lack of hydrolysable
