Chlorophyll is located within the thylakoid membrane of the chloroplast. Chlorophyll is found in virtually all photosynthetic organisms, including green plants, cyanobacteria, and algae.
Chlorophyll is a pigment present in all green plants and a few other organisms. It is required for photosynthesis, which is the process by which light energy is converted into chemical energy.
Chlorophyll is vital for photosynthesis, which allows plants to absorb energy from light. Light energy is converted into chemical energy.
- Using the energy of light, carbohydrates such as sugars are synthesised from carbon dioxide and water. With photosynthesis, chlorophyll absorbs energy and then transforms water and carbon dioxide into oxygen and carbohydrates.
