Detailed Light Independent Reaction (Calvin Benson cycle) Flow of carbon in the Biosphere Chemical Energy is used in this reaction. 1) CO 2 enters the atmosphere by attaching to Ribulose Bisphosphate (5-C). This process is catalyzed by Rubisco. 2) The CO 2 and Ribulose Bisphosphate (5-C) combine to form 6 Intermediate (6-C). 3) The 6 Intermediate (6-C) is so unstable that it splits and forms 12 3- Phosphoglycerate (3-C). 4) The 12 3-Phosphoglycerate (3-C) forms
