Two propeller-shaped chiral CoIII3YIII complexes built from fluorinated ligands are synthesized and characterized by single-crystal X-Ray diffraction (SXRD), IR, UV-Vis, Circular Dichroism (CD), Elemental analysis, Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), Electron Spray Ionization Mass Spectroscopy (ESI-MS) and NMR (1H, 13C and 19F). This work explores the sensing and discrimination abilities of these complexes, thus providing an innovative sensing method using a 19F NMR chemosensory system and opening new directions in 3d/4f chemistry. Control experiments and theoretical studies shed light on the sensing mechanism, while the scope and limitations of this method are discussed and presented.
