Default What is chlorophyll?

Wisteria, chlorophyll is the green coloration in leaves of plants, that allows plants to "make food". Essentially, the chlorophyll absorbs sunlight and uses that energy to synthesize carbohydrates using Carbon dioxide and water molecules. See [url]http://www.chm.bris.ac.uk/motm/chlorophyll/chlorophyll_h.htm[/url] for a good overview of the process of photosynthesis.
