This research aims to investigate the decolorization of Methylene Blue (MB) dye by the composite of brown-rot fungus Gloeophyllum trabeum (GT) using metal-organic framework (MOF) UiO-66 produced in variations of up to 15, 30, and 45 mg. According to the results, the highest percentage of MB decolorization was shown by UiO-66(45)@GT composite 88.99% after 72 hours which was higher than free-living GT fungus. Moreover, the decolorization rate of MB with MOF UiO-66(45) and free GT reached only 79.11% and 65.92%; hence, UiO-66 enhances the free fungi decolorization ability. After calculating the kinetics and plotting the data from the adsorption capacities and contact time of MB adsorption, it was concluded that all tested materials followed a pseudo-second-order kinetics model.
