"capturing suns energy occurs mostly in leaves chlorophyll is a pigment that is in chloroplasts (organelle)
chlorophyll is like a solar cell
chlorophyll captures sun energy and uses it for stage two of photosynthesis"
This I heard from somewhere. Maybe Spock of Star Trek Fame has plant goo running through his veins. This makes more sense that all the vendors hawking chlorophyll as some kind of blood transfusion.
WTF you say? Yes. How can this association be? The point of similarity is that both things convert energy from one from to another. A windmill coverts wind energy into useful mechanical energy, usually to pump water from a well. A more modern application is converting wind energy into electrical energy for general consumption.
Chlorophyll does something similar. It coverts the energy of a photon, light energy into chemical energy that is used to create sugar during photosynthesis.
Both of these things act as intermediaries in their respective energy conversion systems.
"Chlorophyll b is like a sponge, it takes light in and holds onto it, like a storage area. It is an accessory pigment. "
