    Abstract

    In the self-assembly of PdII ions and two different, but similarly shaped, ligands (1 and 2), neither random mixing nor self-sorting of the two ligands into two unmixed structures was observed. Instead a mixed, yet sorted, Pd12(1)12(2)12 cantellated tetrahedron (and its pseudoisomer) was selectively formed, thus revealing a fine example of intramolecular selfsorting. A case study showed that a homothetic ratio of >2 is necessary to observe cantellated tetrahedra.
