Photosynthesis is a highly regulated, multistep process. It encompasses the harvest of solar energy, transfer of excitation energy, energy conversion, electron transfer from water to NADP +, ATP generation and a series of enzymatic reactions that assimilate carbon dioxide and synthesize carbohydrate.. Photosynthesis has a unique place in the history of plant science, as its central concepts ...

Historically, the role of light in photosynthesis has been ascribed either to a photolysis of carbon dioxide or to a photolysis of water and a resultant rearrangement of constituent atoms into molecules of oxygen and glucose (or formaldehyde). The discovery of photophosphorylation demonstrated that photosynthesis includes a light-induced phosphorus metabolism that precedes, and is independent ...

The process of photosynthesis is commonly written as: 6CO 2 + 6H 2 O → C 6 H 12 O 6 + 6O 2.This means that the reactants, six carbon dioxide molecules and six water molecules, are converted by light energy captured by chlorophyll (implied by the arrow) into a sugar molecule and six oxygen molecules, the products. The sugar is used by the organism, and the oxygen is released as a by-product.
