In the title heterodinuclear complex, [CuNa(BF4)(C8H7O3)2]n, the CuII ion is four-coordinated by four O atoms of two 2-formyl-6-methoxyphenolate ligands, giving rise to a square-planar geometry. The Na+ ion is six-coordinated by four O atoms from the two ligands and two F atoms of two tetrafluoridoborate anions. The tetrafluoridoborate anion links the Na+ ions, forming a one-dimensional structure along . Three F atoms of the tetrafluoridoborate anion are disordered over two sets of sites, with an occupancy ratio of 0.790 (11):0.210 (11).
