Light trap in photosynthesis

Of theĀ  several photosynthetic pigments, only chlorophyll-a can convert light into chemical energy. However this does not mean that light absorbed by the other pigments is waste. On the other hand, the light absorbed by the other pigments is transferred to chlorophyll-a . This transfer may be direct or as it happens more usually, some …

Light Harvesting Complexes

Sun is the source of an incessant flow of energy which forms a range of electromagnetic spectrum, of a portion of which is perceived by us as a light. A small portion of this light between the wavelength 39-700 nm is absorbed by the chlorophylls and other photosynthetic pigments and becomes available for photosynthesis, as …

Mechanism of Photosynthesis

Mechanism of Photosynthesis Plant Physiology Plant physiology deals with the studies of life processes that are similar in many organisms. Thousands of chemical reactions are underway in every living cell transferring water, mineral salts and gases from the environment into organized plant tissue. Plants are also endowed with the property of photosynthesizing, a unique feature …
