Tributyltin chloride (TBT) is an organic biocide that has been widely used as wood and stone treatment, textile preservation, water paints, paper/leather preservation and antifouling paints (Fang et al., 2010). TBT is highly toxic and the use of TBT in industries has led to significant concentration of TBT in the environment (Brandli, 2009). Therefore, efforts are been made to reduce the concentration of TBT in wastewaters to the barest minimum before discharge into the environment (Ayanda et al., 2012).
