The dominant factor in the assembly process leading to the formation of coordination polymer nanotubes (CPNTs) is related to the 3D geometry of a multidentate ligand. In contrast, networks of interconnected spheres were generated with ligands having essentially 2D structures, regardless of the different number of palladium coordination sites. This ligand-structure effect is described by M. E. van der Boom and co-workers in their Communication on page 3224 ff.
