Through coordination-driven self-assembly, aesthetically captivating structures can be formed by tuning the length or flexibility of various components. The self-assembly of an elongated rigid terphenyl-based tetra-pyridyl ligand (L1) with a cis-Pd(II) acceptor produces an M12L1624+ triangular orthobicupola structure (1). When flexibility is introduced into the ligand by the incorporation of a -CH2- group between the dipyridylamine and terphenyl rings in the ligand (L2), anunique M8L2416+ water-soluble �intertwined cubic structure� (2) results. The inherent flexibility of ligand L2 might be the key factor behind the formation of the thermodynamically stable and �intertwined cubic structure� in this scenario. This research showcases the ability to design and fabricate novel, topologically distinctive molecular structures by a straightforward and efficient approach. © 2023 Wiley-VCH GmbH.
