The paper investigates the surfactant effect on the interaction of solid particle and gas bubble in a liquid subjected to vibrations. Surfactant transport between the bubble surface and the surrounding liquid is limited by the adsorption-desorption process. The particle is subjected to the Stokes, Basset and buoyancy forces, and average force related to the inhomogeneity of the pulsational field. The problem is solved numerically. It is found that in the presence of surfactant, the impact of
