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 generation of high-energy biomolecules using light energy. The chloroplasts (organ cells) in which the chlorophyll (leaf green) is located are responsible for this. With dyes like chlorophyll, carotenoids and flavonoids in Scroll or other green parts of plants, solar radiation is used as an energy source to produce carbohydrate compounds. Doing so carbon dioxide from the air and water to the carbohydrates glucose and fructose converted while more elementary oxygen is released. The absorption of solar energy by plants annually binds around 150 billion tons of carbon dioxide and releases 400 billion tons of oxygen.

photosynthesis

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