REDOX (Reduction/Oxidation) Redox can involve loss or gain of an electron or a hydrogen (which contains the electron) C 6 H 12 O 6 + 6O 2 ---> 6CO 2 + 6H 2 O Carbon loses hydrogen therefore is oxidized. Oxygen gains hydrogen therefore is reduced.

Unformatted text preview: structures called thylakoids. This is where the chlorophyll is and where photosynthesis takes place. The steps of photosynthesis There are two major parts in photosynthesis: light dependent reactions light independent reactions (aka the Calvin cycle) Light Chlorophyll absorbs only certain types of light The rest is reflected (this is the color that we see) Other pigments besides Chlorophyll There other pigments besides chlorophyll that help to trap other types of light These other types of pigments are called helper pigments Light-dependent reactions The light dependent reaction occurs in specialized groups of pigments called photosystems....
