Energy Migration in Photosynthesis

Part of the NATO Advanced Science Institutes Series book series (NSSA, volume 69)

Abstract

Photosynthesis in chlorophyll-containing organisms is of paramount importance among natural biological phenomena. Conversion of light energy into useful chemical energy by photosynthetic organisms is a very efficient process. This is enabled by a very highly adapted structure strongly relying on a dual entity, the antenna-reaction centre. Following the absorption of a photon by any of the antenna chlorophyll molecules, the excitation energy is quickly transferred to and trapped by a special chlorophyll “pair” in which charge separation then takes place.
