Question: cpptme3 and cptime3 have similar structures but different reactivity cptime3...

Question details

CpPtMe3 and CpTiMe3 have similar structures but different reactivity. CpTiMe3 is only stable a very low temperatures in the absence of air and water, whereas CpPtMe3 is stable at room temp. How can you rationalize the differences in reactivity (focusing on the M-methyl bonds)? How might CpTiMe3decompose in the absence of water? In the presence of water?
