Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) emerge as a new class of porous crystalline materials which has attracted tremendous attention due to their efficient properties such as high porosity and wide range of applications such as catalyst, gas adsorption, gas separation, sensor devices and so on. In this work, a MOF-199 (Cu-BTC) with novel morphology has been synthesized by using a simple, low-cost and one-step hydrothermal method. Copper nitrate and trimesic acid were used as precursors. Crystalline structure, morphological, compositional and optical properties of the sample were studied by using X-ray diffraction (XRD), Field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), and UV-Vis-NIR spectroscopy, respectively. The results verified formation of highly crystalline Cu-BTC. No unwanted impurity was detected in the product. The sample showed a hierarchical morphology consisted of self-assembled flower-like nanosheets. The optical studies on the sample revealed high transparency of material in the visible region and indirect bandgap.
