      Cu-BTC/AC composite porous materials were synthesized and were characterized using XRD, FT-IR, TEM and BET techniques. Their adsorptive desulfurization performance was investigated for the removal of thiophene from thiophene/n-octane model oil under mild reaction conditions. Investigation results have shown that the 50%Cu-BTC/AC composite sample has the highest adsorption desulfurization ability under optimum adsorption temperature of 30 ℃, optimum model oil/adsorbent mass ratio of 100:1. After 6 hours of desulfurization, the 50%Cu-BTC/AC composite sample has exhibited the highest adsorption rate of 74% and the adsorption capacity was 28.19 mS/g MOF. The 50%Cu-BTC/AC composite sample adsorbent could be reused for at least five consecutive rounds with a slight decrease in adsorption capacity with the increase in number of reuse times. The adsorption kinetics behavior of Cu-BTC/AC composite was studied and results have shown that the adsorption of thiophene on Cu-BTC/AC composites fits well both the pseudo-first order rate equation and pseudo-second order rate equation models.
