All life on the Earth depends on photosynthesis which is a photochemical process in green plants and in some bacteria that has a very high quantum yield unusual for visible light energy transformation into organic chemical reactions. Important information about photosynthetic pigments has been obtained in studies of their luminescence, which is quite specific in comparison with typical organic dyes.
