We analyze the effects of on-site electronic coulomb repulsion U on the optical absorption and density of states of a graphene like structure with two different sublattice on-site energies in the context of Hubbard model. Mean field approximation has been implemented in order to find excitation spectrum of electronic system. Antiferromagnetic long range ordering has been considered as the ground state of model Hamiltonian. We find that the band gap in both optical conductivity and density of states decreases with strength of coulombic interaction. The absorption spectra of the graphene like structure as a nanoscale system exhibit the prominent peaks, mainly owing to the divergent density of states and excitonic effects.
