The purpose of this research was to know the adsorption capability of carrot (CTS) seeds and thyme leaves (TEL) for the elimination of Safranin O dye from aqueous solutions. The influence of multiple factors such as contact time, adsorbate concentration, adsorbent concentration, and the influence of temperature was examined. The mechanism of adsorption of Safranin O dye ions onto carrot seeds and thyme leaves were calculated thermodynamically and kinetically. The adsorption isotherms were described by utilized Langmuir, Freundlich and Dubnin-Radushkevich models. Keywords - Adsorption; Safranin O; Adsorption Isotherm; Carrot Seeds; Thyme Leaves.
