Abstract: In this paper it is proved that when X is a $ {k_R}$-space then $ \mu X$ (the smallest subspace of $ \beta X$ containing X with the property that each of its bounded closed subsets is compact) also is a $ {k_R}$-space; an example is given of a $ {k_R}$-space X such that its Hewitt realcompactification, $ \upsilon X$, is not a $ {k_R}$-space. We show with an example that there is a non-$ {k_R}$-space X such that $ \upsilon X$ and $ \mu X$ are $ {k_R}$-spaces. Also we answer negatively a question posed by Buchwalter: Is $ \mu X$ the union of the closures in $ \upsilon X$ of the bounded subsets of X? Finally, without using the continuum hypothesis, we give an example of a locally compact space X of cardinality $ {\aleph _1}$ such that $ \upsilon X$ is not a k-space.
