Alkylation is the introduction of an alkyl group into an organic compound by substitution or addition. It 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 carbine. Alkyl substituent is an alkane which has one missing hydrogen atom. It is basically the process of introducing hydrocarbons into chemicals. An alkyl group molecule has the general formula as CnH2n+1, where ‘n’ signifies a number of carbons associated together.
