Abstract

Since its discovery in 1877, Friedel–Crafts alkylation has been one of the most significant reactions in organic chemistry. The breadth of this reaction has increased over 130 years, and it is now moving toward a more environmental friendly and economically viable homogenous approach. This reaction could potentially be carried out in a continuous or supercritical manner. For the alkylation of anisole and indole, a variety of catalysts were used, including solid acid catalysts, ionic liquids, and supported ionic liquids. Aside from the process efficiency, the rising tendency of Friedel–Crafts alkylation ensures its environmental friendliness and energy economy. Various catalysts for Friedel–Crafts alkylation in the homogeneous medium were discussed in this chapter along with their industrial viability. The viability of their business and future obstacles are also discussed.
