The development of a technology employing materials containing specific alkaloids from biomasses of agricultural production would be extremely beneficial and relatively inexpensive for the remediation of polluted soils and may represent a possible new industrial and commercial opportunity. We have studied detoxification and degradation of persistent chloroorganic pesticides by using plant extracts, which contained alkaloids. Reactions DDT with alkaloid Anabasine and extractive sum of alkaloids, isolated from ground up part plant Anabasis аphylla proceed more easy without solvent. It is established, that at interaction alkaloids of Anabasis aphylla with pesticide DDT occurs degradation to formation of less toxic DDE. Results the carried out researches on studying interaction sum of alkaloids, isolated from ground up part plant Anabasis Ahylla, with DDT in various ratio (1:1, 2:1, 3:1) have shown, that thus there are detoxification pesticide DDT on 35% - 45%, 75% - 80% and 80% - 85% according to formation dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene (DDE), and in presence humic acids the degree degradation achieves to 95% - 97%.
