Halloysite nanotubes (HNTs) have been extensively investigated for potential utilization due to their unique structure and properties as a type of natural, eco-friendly clay. The synthesis and modification of magnetic halloysite nanotubes was studied using several experimental techniques including SEM, TEM, FT-IR, Raman spectroscopy, UV-Vis spectroscopy, and BET. Dye absorption experiments were conducted to understand bonding using EDS, XPS, XRD, and Raman spectroscopy. In this study, we evaluated Sunset Yellow FCF (SY) dye removal as a model to understand bonding structures among magnetic HNTs, magnetic particles, and dye molecules. We focus on the interactions of SY-magnetic HNTs and characteristics of magnetization by VSM after SY dye adsorption, which highlight the notable features of magnetic halloysite nanotubes. We used different pH environments to study the behavior of magnetic HNTs after dye absorption. The application of these modified HNTs is promising for future organic dye removal and wastewater treatment.
