Heavy metals are contaminants of much environmental apprehension, as they are hazardous to human being and other biota. Buildup of heavy metals in crop plants is of great concern due to the probability of food contamination through the soil-root interface. For this purpose, a hydroponic study was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of sunflower plant to phytoremediate Pb and Ni contaminated water in the absence and presence of synthetic chelator. Results showed that application of Ni and Pb… 
Phytoremediation of Lead and Chromium using Sunflower ( Helianthus annuus L . ) in Contaminated Soils of IBB University , Lapai , Nigeria
Heavy metals are known to have adverse effect on ecosystem and human health when ingested beyond tolerant limit as such phytoremediation utilizes plants to remediate metal polluted areas. The
Influence of endophytic Bacillus pumilus and EDTA on the phytoextraction of Cu from soil by using Cicer arietinum
TLDR
The calculated bioaccumulation and translocation factor (TF) revealed that C. arietinum possess phytoextraction potential for Cu, and this ability is significantly improved with application of B. pumilus and EDTA amendments.
Phytoremediation of nickel polluted ecosystem through selected ornamental plant species in the presence of bacterium Kocuria rhizophila
TLDR
It was concluded that the aforementioned plants can safely be grown for phytoremediation purposes to reduce soil pollution in term of heavy metal accumulation.
Metal Accumulation Profile of Catharanthus roseus (L.) G.Don and Celosia argentea L. with EDTA Co-Application
The problem of metal-induced toxicity is proliferating with an increase in industrialization and urbanization. The buildup of metals results in severe environmental deterioration and harmful impacts
The Possibility of Use of Oil Seed Plants and Grasses for Phytoremediation
The possibility of using oilseed plants which have great biomass and have ability to accumulate large amounts of heavy metals is discussed. It was studied the metal accumulation ability of sunflower
Investigating the Effect of Dimercaprol on Phytoremediation of L ead by Zea mays, Helianthus annuus, Sinapis arvensis
Phytoremediation is a cleansing technique for soils, which uses the ability of metal accumulator plants to extract metal from polluted soil with their roots and to concentrate these metals in
Phytoextraction of heavy metals from a multiply contaminated dredged sediment by chicory (Cichorium intybus L.) and castor bean (Ricinus communis L.) enhanced with EDTA, NTA, and citric acid application
TLDR
Citric acid-assisted phytoextraction with chicory can be a promising short time solution to reduce Cr concentration in sediment and reach the Cr level guide for industrial land use only if suitable agronomic practices could be implemented to increase crop yield.
CITRIC ACID MEDIATED PHYTOEXTRACTION OF CADMIUM BY MAIZE ( ZEA MAYS L . )
The aim of the investigation was to determine the potential of citric acid for accumulation and translocation of cadmium and their effect on maize growth. The plants were grown in small plastic
Phyto-Extraction of Nickel by Linum usitatissimum in Association with Glomus intraradices
TLDR
It can be concluded that the role of flax plants and mycorrhizal fungi is extremely important in phytoremediation and helps in the accumulation of Ni in plants to reclaim Ni toxic soils.

TLDR
An overview is given of the state of the art of enhancing heavy metal solubility in soils, increasing the heavy metal accumulation of several high-biomass-yielding and metal-tolerant plants, and the effect of these measures on the risk of heavy metal leaching.
Recent Findings on the Phytoremediation of Soils Contaminated with Environmentally Toxic Heavy Metals and Metalloids Such as Zinc, Cadmium, Lead, and Arsenic

Production of nickel bio‐ore from hyperaccumulator plant biomass: Applications in phytomining
TLDR
This work demonstrates the feasibility of furnace treatment for generating Ni‐rich bio‐ore from hyperaccumulator plants and suggests that minimizing the uptake of Ca and/or reducing the Ca content of the biomass prior to furnace treatment would be a worthwhile strategy for improving the quality of Ni bio-ore produced in phytomining operations.
