             Isomerization is a chemical process. In this process compounds is transformed into any of its isomeric forms. ( same atom but different molecular rearrangements.

Examples :
             Pentane, hydrocarbon with five carbon atoms joined in a straight chain to its branched chain isomer 2-methylbutane and 2,2-dimethylpropane.

             In gasoline manufacturing, straight chain hydrocarbons are converted into branched chain hydrocarbons in the presence of a catalyst.
