A practical continuous flow reaction of readily accessible N-(tert-butylsulfinyl)-bromoimine with Grignard reagents provides various enantioenriched α-substituted piperidines in good yields and high diastereoselectivities within minutes. The reaction can be scaled-up smoothly and an efficient synthesis of a drug precursor further showcases its utility.
