The use of plants to extract heavy metals from contaminated soil is termed phytoextraction. In recent times, phytoextraction has gained traction as a method for the remediation of spoil soil due to its eco-friendliness and cost-effectiveness. This review study shows how several plant species like Inula viscosa L. artin, Euohorbia dendroides L, Salix Viminalis, Eucalyptus rostrate, Linnum utitatissimum L., Bryopyllum Pinnatum, Cistus salvifolius L, Helichrysium italicum, etc. can be used for the uptake of Lead (Pb) and/or Cadmium (Cd) from contaminated soil. The review demonstrates that the uptake of these heavy metals from soil using selective plant species is effective and efficient.

Keywords : Phytoremediation, Phytoextraction, Plant, Heavy Metals, Lead (Pd) and Cadmium (Cd).
