1 of 9
Photophosphorylation
Adding phosphate to a molecule using light
2 of 9
Photolysis
Splitting (lysis) a molecule using light (photo)
3 of 9
Hydrolysis
Splitting (lysis) of a molecule using water (hydro)
4 of 9
Redox reactions
reactions which involve reduction and oxidation
5 of 9
Reduced
Gained electrons/lost oxygen
6 of 9
Oxidised
Lost electron/ gained oxygen (oxidation of one molecule always ivolves reduction of another)

Coenzyme
Molecule which aids the function of an enzyme (transfer a chemical group from one molecule to another)
8 of 9
NADP
Coenzyme used in photosynthesis - transfers hydrogen from one molecule to another
