Name comes from the Greek language:|
Chloros means fresh green + Phyllon means leaf
Chlorophyll is the green pigment in plants that harnesses the
sun's energy in
Chlorophyll performs metabolic functions in plants such as respiration and growth. Interestingly, the chlorophyll molecule is chemically similar to human blood, except that its central atom is magnesium, whereas that of human blood is iron.
Liquid Chlorophyll may help improve health, immune response and deodorize the body.
Chlorine pigment come in six variations
A = C55H72O5N4Mg - B = C55H70O6N4Mg
C1 = C35H30O5N4Mg - C2 = C35H28O5N4Mg
D = C54H70O6N4Mg - F = C55H70O6N4Mg
The oldest but discovered in 2010 is Chlorophyll f
Cyanobacteria are oxygenic microorganisms
that form stromatolites
Cyanobacteria use water, carbon dioxide, and sunlight to create their food.
They live on stromatolites and are the oldest oxygen producers we know of.
The earliest stromatolite of confirmed microbial origin dates to 3.4 billion years ago.
Without the oxygen production of cyanobacteria on stromatolites Earth would be very different!
Stromatolites were the first massive oxygen producers on Earth, raising the level so other oxygen inhaling lifeforms could survive.
Chlorophyll is a chlorine pigment. Its structure is very similar to heme, but at the center of the chlorine ring is a magnesium ion Mg.
(Hemes are most commonly recognized in their presence as components of hemoglobin. As you know, hemoglobin does very effectively deliver oxygen to human tissues, its in every mammals blood -
that's the reason we talk about a great plan in Nature)
This is a close-up of chlorophyll
Why does chlorophyll look green?
Using Spectrophotometry measuring the absorbance spectra of free chlorophyll a (green) and b (red) we clearly can see that red and blue is absorbed, but green is not absorbed, green light is reflected.
That is the reason we see leaves in a green color.
Why is chlorophyll so important?
Today, almost all life on Earth needs oxygen.
Today, almost all life on Earth depends on plant growth
(If you think different, just email us)
Chlorophyll is the main oxygen factory on Earth!!
Almost all life on Earth needs food
Nature = food = survival for life on Earth
Now you know, why we work as volunteers for an international Nature Conservation group. Please feel invited and very welcome to join BSB!!
We hope you look now differently at this graphic
Now you know how important it is for us humans!

Conservation Education (CE) is the combination of two words that have become one word to educators.
CE is the ability to give people opportunities to grow in knowledge and create changes to their life style and their environment,to have a better life, to have a safer future!
