Abstract

Ball or tube: Flexible and amorphous nanotubes were generated with a palladium salt and a multidentate ligand having a tetrahedral structure (right). In contrast, regardless of the number of metal coordination sites, ligands with a two-dimensional geometry lead to the formation of spheres and their aggregates (left).
