The development of a sustainable strategy for directing porosity into molybdate catalyst is interesting. Herein, a mechanochemical method was proposed to fabricate porous copper molybdate. By using NaCl as an easily removable and recyclable template, the obtained copper molybdate afforded a specific surface area of ∼134 m2/g, which was higher than that of control samples via traditional methods, such as combustion-like methods (5 m2/g), hydrothermal methods (<1 m2/g), and coprecipitation methods (11 m2/g). Moreover, the obtained CuxMo1–xOy exhibited good catalytic performance for the Knoevenagel condensation reaction.
