    Abstract

    Photosynthesis is the process by which chlorophyll containing plants convert solar energy into photochemical energy. This energy stored in the forin of carbohydrates, provides food for man and all other heterotropic organisms. In addition, it provides the most vitally needed supply of oxygen. It is becoming more and more apparent that, evaluation of the true productive potential of water bodies is necessary for utilization of this most fundamental metabolic activity of green plants. The process of photosynthesis is initiated when light is absorbed by an antenna molecule within the photosynthetic membrane. Although there are several pigments that are involved in the light-gathering process, the fundamental importance of chlorophyll (chi) or bacteriophyll (Bchl) is clear from the fact that this molecule is common to all photosynthesis antenna systems, as well as reaction centre.
