The text then tackles citric acid cycle and other cycles and comparative biochemistry of collagen. The publication examines photosynthesis and halides. Topics include transfer of energy along the photosynthetic chain, carbon dioxide reduction, photosynthesis and phosphorylation, quantum yields and the efficiency of light energy conversion. The volume is intended as an introduction to the physical principles governing the main processes that occur in photosynthesis, with emphasis on the light reactions and electron transport chain. A unique feature of the photosynthetic apparatus is the fact that the molecular structures are known in detail for essentially all of its major components. Journals & Books; Register Sign in.

Although the process of light energy conversion to chemical form by specialized plant cell organelles, the chloroplasts, is well understood, many contemporary investigations have been concerned with the catalytic role played by manganese in oxygen evolution. Book Description This landmark collective work introduces the physical, chemical, and biological principles underlying photosynthesis: light absorption, excitation energy transfer, and charge separation. It begins with an introduction to properties of various pigments, and the pigment proteins in plant, algae, and bacterial systems. The book is intended for use by graduate students, beginning researchers and advanced undergraduates in the areas of integrative plant biology, cellular and molecular biology, plant biology, biochemistry, biophysics, plant physiology, global ecology and agriculture.

  The Photosynthetic Membrane: Molecular Mechanisms of Light Harvesting will appeal to a wide audience of undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as researchers working in the fields of biochemistry, molecular biology, biophysics, plant science and bioengineering.

Singhal, G. Renger, S. K. Sopory. Other volumes on photosynthesis have tended to focus on single components or on a specific set of biophysical techniques, and the authors’ goal is to provide new researchers with an introduction to the overall field of photosynthesis. The book is divided into sections, each dealing with one of the main physical processes in photosynthetic. A list of photosynthesis conferences and of edited books in photosynthesis.
