Metal Organic framework (MOF) has been a class of great interest during the past few years owing to its decidedly applicative, easily synthesized and improved characteristics. Ca-BTC MOF is synthesized by Hydrothermal technique and reported for the first time. Its structural morphology was analyzed using XRD, SEM, and EDS, showing the tetragonal crystal structure having grain size of 24.92 nm and purity of sample respectively. FTIR, Raman Spectroscopy ensures the metal organic framework between Calcium and the tri-carboxylic group. Photoluminescence measures the energy gap of 3.792 eV, showing approximately the semiconducting behavior of synthesized material. Zeta potential having value of −13.5 mV confirms the instability having good microbial activity and conductivity i.e 0.290 mS/cm which reveals important insights into its electrical properties.
