In general, splitting of molecules by light energy is photolysis. In case of photosynthesis, photolysis refers to the splitting of water molecule into H+ and OH-, under the influence of light and in presence of chlorophyll. During this reaction, hydrogen binds to an acceptor and oxygen is released.
