In the title salt, [Na(C16H22N6) 2]CF3SO3, the Na+ cation is coordinated by six N atoms from two tridentate tris(3,5-dimethylpyrazol-1-yl) methane ligands in a distorted octahedral geometry. The Na - N distances range from 2.427 (3) to 2.507 (3) Å, intra-ligand N - Na - N angles range from 74.71 (8) to 79.31 (9)°, and adjacent inter-ligand N - Na - N angles range between 100.42 (9) and 104.97 (9)°. The structure is twinned by inversion [occupancy factors = 0.50 (9)] and the trifluoromethanesulfonate anion is disordered, with two end-over-end orientations of unequal occupancy [0.781 (3) and 0.219 (3)].
