An anti-selective catalytic asymmetric nitroaldol reaction was manifested in a continuous-flow platform. The requisite Nd/Na heterogeneous catalyst was readily prepared by self-assembly of an amide-based chiral ligand, NdO 1/5(OiPr)13/5, NaHMDS, and a multiwalled carbon nanotube without covalent linkage. A stainless-steel column filled with the Nd/Na catalyst was incorporated in a flow system to promote the nitroaldol reaction with high stereoselectivity. The flow system with the heterogeneous catalyst obviated the quenching operation, and the cooling system was minimized.
