Abstract

The reaction conditions for the synthesis of Cu–BTC (BTC = benzene-1,3,5-tricarboxylic acid) were elucidated using a continuous-flow microreactor-assisted solvothermal system to achieve crystal size and phase control. A high-rate synthesis of Cu–BTC metal–organic frameworks with a BET surface area of more than 1600 m2 g−1 (Langmuir surface area of more than 2000 m2 g−1) and with a 97% production yield could be achieved with a total reaction time of 5 minutes.
