Copper(II) hydroxide is converted directly to HKUST-1 (Cu3(btc)2) after only 5 min at room-temperature in aqueous ethanolic solution without the need of additional solvents. Scale up to the kilogram scale does not influence porous properties yielding pure-phase product with a remarkable total surface area exceeding 1700 m2 g−1 featuring aggregates of nanometer-sized crystals (<600 nm) and extremely high space-time yields.
