Abstract

Confined cat works better: A self-assembling heterobimetallic catalyst, comprised of a Nd/Na/amide ligand confined in an entangled multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWNT) network, outperforms the unconfined catalyst in anti-selective catalytic asymmetric nitroaldol reactions. The confined catalyst could be used repeatedly through simple filtration, and was applied to a concise enantioselective synthesis of anacetrapib.
