chlorophyll

Chlorophyllmangel (GB)

Blue to yellow-green dye (green leaf green) in the leaves of the plants, which absorbs the sun or light energy; see below photosynthesis,

Process for the production of high-energy biomolecules with the help of light energy. Responsible for this are the chloroplasts (organ cells), in which the chlorophyll (leaf green) is located. By dyes such as chlorophyll, carotenoids and flavonoids in Scroll or other green parts of plants, solar radiation is used as an energy source to make carbohydrate compounds. It will carbon dioxide from the air and water to the carbohydrates glucose and fructose transformed while elemental oxygen is released. The absorption of solar energy by plants binds around 150 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide annually on Earth and releases 400 billion tonnes of oxygen.

photosynthesis

In contrast to the assimilation is the reverse process of dissimilation or respiration (Breathing), in which sugar and oxygen are released into carbon dioxide and water releasing energy. In a cycle of 200 years each, the...
