Dear student 
Bacterial cell do not have chloroplast but yet some photoautotriphic bacteria perform photosynthesis due to the presence of chlorophyll in coperated in the membrane. Embeded in the cell membrane are reaction centers which specifically absorb light energy. These reaction centre exist in forms of sacs-tubes or sheets depending on the amount of surface area needed.

Cyanobacteria are a diverse group of photosynthetic bacteria that were previously known as 'blue green algae'. These prokaryotes perform photosynthesis even though they do not have chloroplast. This is because they possess chlorophylls in the cytoplasm. They have flattened sac like structures called 'thylakoids' where photosynthesis actually takes place.These bacteria thus produce the energy they require from sunlight and carbon dioxide.
