Alkylation

A chemical reaction that fixes an akyl radical onto a molecule. Used when refining to produce high-octane gasoline.

Alkylation

Alkylation is the transfer of an alkyl group from one molecule to another. The alkyl group may be transferred as an alkyl carbocation, a free radical, a carbanion or a carbene (or their equivalents). Alkylating agents are widely used in chemistry because the alkyl group is probably the most common group encountered in organic molecules.{cn|date=Ja...
