What is Chloroplast
Chloroplast:
A plastid
containing
Chlorophyll
and other
pigments
occurring in
plant and
algae that
carry out
photosynthesis.
Venn-diagram
The Difference Between Chlorophyll and Chloroplast
Chlorophyll
 A light
absorbing
plant
molecule
 Paves the
way for light
to create
the process
of
photosynthe
sis
 Enables the
green
pigments in
plants
 Contains
red and
yellow
pigments
Chloroplast
 Plant organelles
 Both are
found in
plants
 Both have
the prefix
Chloro
which
means
green in
Greek
 Organize
and
conduct
photosynth
esis
 Do NOT
produce
pigment
s at all
 Are
found in
great
concentr
ations in
the
plants
leaves
What it Does
What Chloroplast/Chlorophyll Do
Chloroplast
 It is the sole reason for
photosynthesis. It absorbs
red and blue light.
 The Chloroplast in plant cells
makes energy for the cell.
 The Chloroplast absorbs the
energy from the sun and
converts it into usable
energy /food for the plant
that can be used or stored
for later.
Chlorophyll
 Chlorophyll is the liquid
substance in a plant cell
that gives it it’s color.
 Plants make food when
sunlight hits the Chlorophyll
in the plant cell.
 Chlorophyll helps to trap
light energy for
photosynthesis.
Photosynthesis.
What Would Happen If…
There was no Chloroplast or Chlorophyll
We would run out of food
and oxygen because the
plants could not go through
with photosynthesis therefore
not making food for the
plant. We need Chloroplast
and Chlorophyll!
Extra Facts
 Chloroplast has a double membrane around them.
 The space inside of a Chloroplast is called the stroma.
The space may contain starch and lipid bodies.
 In the stroma of a Chloroplast there are structures called
thylakoids.
 Chlorophyll is Greek for green leaf.
 Chlorophyll is made up complex ring structures.
 Daniel I. Arnon was the first to demonstrate the chemical
function of photosynthesis outside of a plant cell.
 Chloroplast was originally cells, not mere cell organelles
as they are today.
 Chloroplast makes the plant green.
 There are about 50-60 chloroplasts in a single
photosynthetic cell.
 The Chloroplast is often termed as the energy factory of
the plant.
JOKE
Chloroplast:
So bad it’ll
turn you
green!
