Metal organic framework (MOFs) of copper was synthesized using benzene 1, 4- dicarboxylic acid as a linker and N, N-dimethylformamide as a solvent. The Synthesis of copper MOFs was carried out using solvothermal method. The synthesized Cu-MOFs was characterized using the Fourier transform infra-red spectroscopy(FTIR), Scanning electron microscopy SEM, and Energy Dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, EDX, was utilized for morphology and elemental analysis respectively. The elemental composition was Cu = 23.6 %, C= 54.1% & O= 22.3 %. Synthesized Cu-MOF was used in crude oil adsorption study by simulation of spillage with 50 mL of distilled water. The result showed that Cu-MOFs is an effective adsorbent for crude oil.
