  • Photosynthesis
    • Light Dependent Reaction
      • Photolysis
        • Water is broken down into H+
          • (Using light energy)
      • Photo-ionisation
        • Pigments become ionised by light
        • Photosystems have pigments
      • Phos-phorylation
        • Electrons pass between proteins
          • Redox reactions release energy used to pump H+ in
            • H+ diffuse out through ATP Synthase releasing energy
              • Energy used to phosphorylate ADP+Pi
                • Phos-phorylation
                  • Electrons pass between proteins

                        • Energy used to phosphorylate ADP+Pi
      • Chloroplast
        • Stroma
        • Granum
        • Thylakoid
        • Double Membrane
      • Factors Affecting:
        • Light
        • Carbon Dioxide
        • Temperature
        • Water Availability
      • Light Independent Reaction (Calvin Cycle)
        • 3C-Glycerate Phosphate made into 3C-Triose Phosphate
          • (Using ATP and NADPH from Light Dependant)
          • Some Glucose released
            • ATP added to turn 3C-Triose Phosphate into 5C-RuBP
              • Rubisco Enzyme and Carbon Dioxide
                • 3C-Glycerate Phosphate produced
