Abstract

In environment there are varied form of life. Depending on its physical, chemical and biological properties, heavy metals have been released into the environment may move within an aquifer in the same manner that ground water contaminants. The contamination of nature compartments by heavy metals has become a serious environmental problem. Due to high cost of conventional cleanup technology, there is an increasing interest in the remediation of contaminated sites using biological environmental friendly technique i.e. phytoremediation. It this technique in which soil contamination due to industrial activities is minimized. In this method heavy metals are isolated and detoxify. Phytoremediation process is widely accepted as a cost effective and environmental friendly cleanup technology. During the exposure of plants to contaminated soils the antioxidant defense system helps the plant to protect itself from the damage. Antioxidants are substances used the body to protect itself from damage caused by oxidation due to toxic environment. Solanum nigrum (Black night shade) is common plant grown in all part of the India. In the presence work the plant S. nigrum was exposed to the heavy metal chromium contaminated soils and the biological factors, vitamins and mineral factor and antioxidant factors were investigated. From the observation it is evident that the heavy metal chromium affects significantly the biochemical factors, vitamins and mineral factors and antioxidant factors in S. nigrum plant. It is also clear that Solanum nigrum is found to be heavy higher antioxidant property than other plants.

Key Words

Solanum nigrum, Phytoremediation, antioxidant factors.
