Central NaF and MgF2 frameworks are present in the title compounds obtained from the reaction of [Cp*TiF3] (Cp C5Me5) with elemental sodium and magnesium, respectively. In these reactions TiIV is reduced to TiIII. The Cp*Ti units function as organometallics shields around the cagelike core and are responsible for the high solubility of the compounds.
