Full details of an anti-selective catalytic asymmetric nitroaldol reaction promoted by a heterobimetallic catalyst comprised of Nd(5)O(O(i)Pr)(13), an amide-based ligand, and NaHMDS (sodium hexamethyldisilazide) are described. A systematic synthesis and evaluation of amide-based ligands led to the identification of optimum
