For newly prepared sodium tetrakis(3-heplafluorobutylryl-(+)-camphorato) Ln(III) complexes, the X-ray crystal analysis revealed an unprecedented pseudo-achiral dodecahedron (DD-8 (D 2d)), whereas in CHCl 3 solution, the exciton CD and 19F NMR spectra showed a novel chiral Δ-SAPR-8 (C 4) configuration which is stereospecifically formed by a trapped Na + ion with Na +⋯FC (fluorocarbon) interactions.
