A Schiff base tin (IV) compound was synthesized by reactions between 2-((E)-(p-tolylimino)methyl)phenol (TIMPH) and butyltin trichloride in 2:1 mole ratio in ethanol at room temperature. [SnBuCl3(TIMPH)2] was characterized by FT-IR, 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR spectroscopy, elemental analysis, and mass spectrometry. Optimization of Murexide dye from aqueous solution was performed by examining; effect of contact time, initial pH, adsorbent amount, initial dye concentration and temperature on the tin adsorbent. The highest adsorption recovery value of was 98.00% and the adsorption capacity was 248.8 mg/g at the end of 20 minutes at 100 mg/L dye concentration while the temperature was 25°C and the pH was 3. Langmuir, Freundlich, and Temkin adsorption isotherms were calculated at 25 ºC. The highest R2 value was found 0.099 for the Langmuir isotherm model. The adsorption characteristics of murexide dye showed that adsorption kinetic obeyed the pseudo-second-order kinetics, and the thermodynamic data suggested the spontaneous and exothermic process.
