One of the metal-organic framework (MOF) material known as MOF-2, with the formula of Zn2(BDC)2 (where Zn = zinc, BDC = benzenedicarboxylic acid) is commonly synthesized at room temperature. In current project, MOF-2 was synthesized using solvothermal method at higher temperature. The current project attempted to study the effect of different temperature and time of synthesis on MOF-2. Several characterization analysis have been performed on the MOFs samples to determine the properties of MOF-2 that have been produced which included Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), Thermal Gravimetric Analysis (TGA), and Particle Size Analyzer (PSA). The study demonstrated differences as well as similarities of MOF-2 properties for different synthesis parameters
