What is the chemical environment of chlorophyll in the plant? The importance of this question lies in the premise that only when the architectural relations of chlorophyll molecules, both to themselves and to other substances, is known, will it become possible to describe the mechanism by which chlorophyll takes part in the conversion of light energy to chemical energy by means of photosynthesis. The chemical nature of chlorophyll in vivo continues to be one of the major unsolved problems of plant physiology.
