S. Eilenberg and G. M. Kelly have defined a closed category as a category with internal homomorphism functor, left Yoneda natural arrows, unity object and suitable coherence axioms. A monoidal closed category is a closed category with an associative tensor product which is adjoint to the int-hom. This paper proves that a closed category can be embedded in a monoidal closed category: the embedding preserves any associative tensor product which may exist. Besides the usual tools of the theory of closed categories the proof uses the results of B. Day on promonoidal structures.
