MOFs are typically synthesized under harsh conditions that require high pressure and temperature. So, here we necessitating advances in their expedient and scalable synthesis at ambient conditions. Toward that end, the Cu-BDC & Cu-BTC can now be prepared in minutes via a controlled dissolution– crystallization route with divalent metal acetate as a precursor at room temperature, which would be highly desired for industrial implementation and commercialization
