    This article contains one method of fully embedding a symmetric closed category into a symmetric monoidal closed category. Such an embedding is very useful in the study of coherence problems. Also we give an example of a non-symmetric closed category for which, under the embedding discussed in this article, the resultant monoidal closed structure has associativity not an isomorphism.
