Expert Answer:

Chlorophyll is the green pigment found in green plants, algae, and cyanobacteria. It is a complex molecule made up of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen and magnesium. Chlorophyll makes it possible for plants to convert carbon dioxide and water, in the presence of sunlight, into oxygen and glucose during the process of photosynthesis.
