Friedel-Crafts Alkylation Question

  1. 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.
