Cyclohexane is not expected to hydrolyse based on a lack of hydrolysable functional groups. However, according to Atkinson (1985), the kinetic rate constant for the reaction of cyclohexane with OH radicals is measured to be 7.38 E-12 cm3/mol/s, indicating that the atmospheric half-life would be 52 hours.
