The yields of the ring cleavage products glyoxal, methylglyoxal and biacetyl from the reactions of OH radicals with benzene, toluene, o-, m- and p-xylene and 1,2,3-, 1,2,4- and 1,3,5-trimethylbenzene in the presence of part-per-million concentrations of NO have been determined in one atmosphere of air using in situ long pathlength Fourier transform infrared absorption spectroscopy and differential optical absorption spectroscopy with supplementary gas chromatographic analyses. The yields of glyoxal and methylglyoxal were respectively: from toluene, 0.105 plus or minus 0.019 and 0.146 plus or minus 0.006; from o-xylene, 0.087 plus or minus 0.012 and 0.246 plus or minus 0.020; from m-xylene, 0.086 plus or minus 0.011 and 0.319 plus or minus 0.009; from p-xylene, 0.225 plus or minus 0.039 and 0.105 plus or minus 0.034; from 1,2,3-trimethylbenzene, 0.058 plus or minus 0.008 and 0.152 plus or minus 0.025; and from 1,2,4-trimethylbenzene, 0.048 plus or minus 0.005 and 0.357 plus or minus 0.017.
