1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Suggest a procedure for preparing pure n-propyl-p-xylene that doesn't require separating it from isopropyl-p-xylene.

2. Relevant equations
Friedel-Crafts Alkylation equations (I don't know how to type them onto the computer lol, but I know what they are).

3. The attempt at a solution
I have no idea on how to come up with a procedure.
