Using 1,4-diaminobenzene and 2-formylpyridine as simple building blocks results in a 1D ligand (rod, L2) to 2D (M4L4 grid, C1) to 3D (S4 symmetrical M4L6, C2) complexes upon sequential addition of Cu(I) and Fe(II) ions. The complex C2 can be seen as the smallest possible pseudo-tetrahedron with S4 symmetry.
