Phytoremediation a green technology consists of process phytoextraction, rhizofiltration, phytostabilization, phytovolatifization, phytodegradation with increasing industrialization mining pesticides sewage disposal, heavy metal deposition and other contaminants are added in water and soil through human activities. These interfere with the metabolic functions of plants, inhibition phytosynthesis, respiration, crop yield, sometimes intracellular compartments of cell. Mining include crushing, grinding, washing, smelting. There are biologically active chemical constituents in plants. Catachins, Isoflavones, Isothiocyanate, Indoles, Caffeic acid, Apigenin, Lignins, Reveratrol etc which are helpful in certain diseases like arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular problems, acute respiratory damages etc.
