The pigments are carotene and its oxidized derivative xanthophylls (Nishio, 2000). A wavelength is determined by measuring from the crest of one wave to the crest of the next wave. All the wavelengths possible are grouped in a range called the electromagnetic spectrum (Campbell, 1996)...

All the wavelengths possible are grouped in a range called the electromagnetic spectrum (Campbell, 1996). The range most important to life is from 380 to 750nm (Campbell, 1996). These wavelengths correspond to the wavelengths of visible light. Overall blue and red light works best, while green in least effective in the photosynthesis process (Nishio, 2000)...

A Spectrophotometric Analysis of the Absorption of Green Light Versus Red Light Absorption in Spinach Leaves
The goal of the experiment was to determine if green light had less ability to absorb than red light in spinach leaves. This was done by separating the photosynthetic pigments (chlorophyll a, chlorophyll b, carotene and xanthophylls) from one another using paper chromatography...

Photsynthesis Using Dcpip
One study found a decreasing rate of photosynthesis in blue light (Mae et. al. 2000). Another study found that the rate of photosynthesis occurred fastest in red light and that the reason for this was because xanthophylls were dissipating the excess energy associated with blue light (Brins et...

? Hypothesis: My hypothesis for this experiment, the study of the effects of different wavelengths on leaf pigments, if chlorophyll a absorbs blue-violet light, chlorophyll b absorbs blue light, carotene absorbs blue-green light, and xanthophyll absorbs blue light, then wavelengths of greatest absorption will be 400, 450, 500, and 450 respectively...
