A Photosynthesis-absorbing Chemical Compound Found in Plants

Chlorophyll is found in the chloroplasts of a plant's cells, which are small structures. Photosynthesis occurs here. In a plant, the function of chlorophyll is to absorb light, which is usually sunlight. The light energy is delivered to two different types of energy-storing molecules. Plants absorb CO2 and H2O from the air and soil during photosynthesis. Water is oxidised, which means it loses electrons, and carbon dioxide is reduced, which means it receives electrons, within the plant cell. Unlike mammals, plants have the ability to produce their own sustenance.
