      In this article, the self-assembly of cyanuric acid (CA) molecules into nano-structures is examined. Equilibrium geometry of CA is planar and it belongs to the D3h point group. It is shown that CA clusters form three dimensional bowls and balls. Cyclic pentamer (5-bowl) is the basic motif responsible for these non-planar geometries. It is also shown that the cyclic hexamer based clusters can be non-planar if they contain a 5-bowl. A unified criterion for the formation of bowls and balls from basic molecular building blocks emerges from this study. The role of symmetry in supramolecular self-assembly is also clearly evident from the present study.
