Basolite Z-1200 is one of the most popular commercially available MOF for the gas storage applications. Pristine Basolite Z-1200 is an electrically non-conducting material. This research focuses to tap the potential of Basolite Z-1200’s unique porous structure for the adsorption and sensing of a pesticide. For this, the above said MOF has been treated with mineral acids (HCl) to make it electrically active. The protonated MOF solutions have been used to form conducting thin films on glass slides. Electrical measurements have indicated that the proton doping reduces the overall resistance of the MOF. Prepared thin films have been used to sense Mecoprop some in sample solutions. Conducting MOF thin films may find applications in environmental sensors, pre-concentration, solid phase extraction, electronic devices etc.
