    • Abstract

       

      We report on the applicability of an easy and general synthesis procedure for the formation of Ce(IV)-MOFs. Cerium-based metal–organic frame (Ce-MOF) was successfully synthesized by a simple, cost-effective and green route. Highly homogeneous topology, nano-sized crystals, stable oxidation states Ce(III) and Ce(IV) at room temperature, significant surface area and thermal stability up to 320$^{\circ}$C are the notable properties achieved by Ce-MOF. Electrontransferability of the cerium electrode was used for the detection of methylene blue (MB) analyte in acidic buffer solution. Also the effect of different pH buffer solutions on electrode response has been studied. Photocatalytic performance of nano-Ce-MOF was studied on the degradation of MB analyte under visible light.
