why the catalists are pyroporic in nature,while pure metals are not
They’re pyrophoric because Raney Nickel has adsorbed hydrogen on it, as well as high surface area. So oxygen from the atmosphere will ignite the hydrogen, this leads to heat and spontaneous combustion.
Please correct: the “Alkylation of enamines” link also directs to this page.
