Extracted chlorophyll pigments
  1. If we take chlorophyll molecule in a test tube and provide 2 CO and water and expose the mixture to sunlight, glucose is not formed.
  2. If we do the same experiment with intact chloroplasts glucose is formed. This suggests that intact structure of chloroplast is required for photosynthesis.
  3. Chloroplast is a difinite structure containing different types of pigment molecules organised into pigment system.
  4. Chloroplyll is one among the few other pigments present in the chloroplast 
  5. All the pigment molecules including chlorophyll are required for photosynthesis
  6. These different molecules are arranged in a specific manner, facilitating the process of photosynthesis.
