Using a novel layer-by-layer approach we have deposited metal-organic open frameworks (MOFs) based on benzenetricarboxylic acid ligands and Cu(II)-ions on a COOH-terminated organic surface. The deposited layers were characterized using a number of surface analysis techniques. XRD measurements show that the MOFs deposited using this method have the same bulk structure of HKUST-1.
