A metal−organic polyhedron of truncated octahedral geometry augmented with a C4-symmetric square-planar CuII paddle-wheel node as a secondary building unit can be prepared using a C3-symmetric ligand that occupies the face of the octahedral cage, where the three phenyl groups containing a m-carboxylate group in the ligand provide the necessary curvature to form the finite octahedral cage.
