what is the importace of emission of electrons from chlorophyll during photosynthesis in plants?
Asked by | 23rd Jun, 2008, 09:13: PM
The emitted high energy electrons travel through the electron transport chain present in the chloroplast. This process is mediated by a number of electron acceptors. The energy is stepped down at each step (i.e. released) and used to form ATP from ADP and Phosphate. This ATP is used as source of energy during dark reaction. Thus ATP formation is facilitated by electron emission from chlorophyll.
