A novel metal-organic framework, Cu-BDC was synthesized by static hydrothermal method using innocuous solvents and characterized by several techniques such as powder XRD, ESR, TG-DTA, elemental analysis, ICPAES, SEM, EDXS, FT-IR, BET surface area, pore volume and pore size. The catalytic performance of Cu-BDC was explored for O-acetylation of alcohols under solvent-free conditions at room temperature. The catalyst exhibited remarkable activity and reusability affording the desired products in excellent yields.
