The current study aims to investigate the interaction of the antibiotic Azithromycin (Az) as a ligand with copper (II) metal and its efficiency in the removal of toxic New Fuchsin (NFD) dye from wastewater. The suggested structure of was characterized by different techniques such as FTIR, UVVis, mass spectrometry, and elemental analysis. The efficacy of using Copper-Azithromycin complex (Cu2+-Az) complex to remove New Fuchsin (NFD) dye from aqueous solution was investigated through batch adsorption studies and examined using spectroscopic UV-Vis techniques. The effects of the contact time, the initial concentration, the temperature, and the adsorbent dosage are studied. The (Cu2+-Az) complex and (Cu2+-Az/NFD) dye are characterized by SEM and FTIR analysis. The removal percentage of dye increase with increase the adsorbent dose (78.2%) as well as increase with an increase in the initial dye concentration. Adsorption equilibrium data was fitted with Langmuir and Freundlich equations to describe the isotherms.
