Abstract: The study investigates the effectiveness and mechanism of the adsorption of malachite green from single and mixed dyes aqueous solutions by an adsorbent prepared from acid-treated Parkia biglobosa sawdust. The adsorbent was characterized using different techniques, and the adsorption was conducted in single, binary, ternary and quaternary dye systems under different experimental conditions. Experimental results were subjected to different isotherm and kinetics models. The adsorption process was endothermic and thermodynamically feasible with the removal efficiency increasing with increase in adsorbent dosage, solution working pH, initial dye concentration and contact time. The rate of sorption of the dye was fast; it attained equilibrium within 180 min in both the single and mixed solute systems. Pseudo-second order model gives the best kinetics fit (R2 = 0.998). The adsorption isotherm in all solute systems have best fits for the Temkin model (R2 > 0.96).
