I think some have some of those nasty fuels F1 turbo cars used to run, but really, if there are molecules in the combustion chamber with low activation energy (low octane) and high activation energy (high octane), then the pressure and heat is going to touch off those low octane molecules no matter what. So octane boosters would need to be inhibitors that would surround the low octane molecules and keep them away from oxygen until the high octane ignition point was reached.
