The hybrid magnetic Sr 5x Ba 3x (PO 4 ) 3 (OH)/Fe 3 O 4 (SBPF) nanorod was prepared and characterized using different techniques, such as SEM, EDS, TEM, SAED, HRTEM, XRD, and FT-IR. Adsorption studies of acid fuchsin (AF) from aqueous solution with respect to the pH, temperature, time, initial dye concentration, and sorbent dosage were investigated. The Freundlich adsorption model was applied to describe the equilibrium isotherms. The maximal AF uptake by SBPF was 1590 mg/g in the test. Kinetics parameters of the adsorption process indicated that it followed the pseudo-second order equation, and the maximum sorption capacity calculated from the pseudo-second-order rate equation was 909 mg/g which was close to the experimental value. Adsorption thermodynamics study indicated the spontaneous nature and exothermic of the adsorption process. The removal of AF was attributed to the hydrogen bond and ionic interactions. Moreover, SBPF was easily recovered, and the adsorption capacity was approximately 97.7% of the initial saturation adsorption capacity after being used five times.
