Investigated participation of leguminous plants (Faba bona Medic. (Vicia faba L.)) in remediation of the oil polluted soils. It was shown a direct relationship of soil toxicity on the content of oil in it (10, 25, 50 and 100g of oil on 1 kg of soil). It was set that plants of V. faba substantially reduced a phytotoxicity and content of oil products in polluted soils, which gives grounds to recommend this species for  oil polluted soil phytoremediation.
