Chlorophyllais a specific form ofchlorophyllused inoxygenicphotosynthesis. It absorbs most energy fromwavelengthsof violet-blue and orange-red light.It also reflects green/yellow light, and as such contributes to the observed green color of most plants. Thisphotosynthetic pigmentis essential for photosynthesis ineukaryotes,cyanobacteriaandprochlorophytesbecause of its role as primary electron donor in theelectron transport chain.Chlorophyllaalso transfers resonance energy in theantenna complex, ending in thereaction centrewhere specific chlorophyllsP680andP700are located.
