In this paper, a new green electrochemical sensor was constructed, and the Co-MOF material was synthesized by a simple one-step synthesis method. The Co-MOF/CMK-3 composite was modified on the surface of glassy carbon electrode (GCE) to construct an electrochemical sensor, and the electrochemical behaviours of the Co-MOF/CMK-3 modified electrode were investigated by CV and DPV. The developed Co-MOF/CMK-3 electrochemical sensor achieved quantitative detection of OFL. Under the optimal experimental conditions, the Co-MOF/CMK-3/GCE sensor exhibited a wide linear ranging from 1 × 10-6 to 2 × 10-5 mol/L.
