Can green plants also undergo photosynthesis under led light?

Generally speaking, green plants can also undergo certain photosynthesis under sunlight.

  1. The process of photosynthesis is a relatively complex problem. On the surface, the total reaction formula of photosynthesis seems to be a simple oxidation-reduction process, but in essence, it includes a series of photochemical steps and material transformation problems.
  2. According to modern data, the entire photosynthesis process can be roughly divided into the following three steps:

(1) Primary reactions, including the absorption, transfer, and conversion of light energy;

(2) Electron transfer and photosynthetic phosphorylation form active chemical energy (ATP and NADPH);

(3) Carbon assimilation converts active chemical energy into stable chemical energy (fixing CO2 to form sugars).

  1. Before introducing the process of photosynthesis, it is necessary to have a certain understanding of the photosynthetic pigments and photosystem involved in the photosynthesis process.

The principle of photosynthesis is:


  1. Photolysis of water: 2H2O → 4 [H]+O2 (providing hydrogen for dark reactions);
  2. The formation of ATP: ADP+Pi+light energy → ATP (providing energy for dark reactions).

Dark reactions:

  1. CO2 fixation: CO2+C5 → 2C3;
  2. Reduction of C3 compounds: 2C3+[H]+ATP → (CH2O)+C5.

Green plants refer to non unicellular plants that contain chlorophyll. It can usually be understood as a plant that appears green.

Its function is to absorb carbon dioxide, produce oxygen, and maintain the stability of the biosphere. Creating protective forests in wind damaged areas can reduce wind speed by about 30% within the protected range and reduce the impact of sandstorms on us.

Green plants can also regulate the climate. In a summer, each tree needs to transpiration an average of 2 tons of water, causing the air humidity above the forest to be about 10-25% higher than that in non forested areas.

Green plants can preserve soil and water, reduce soil erosion, and greatly improve the ecological environment. High sensitivity green plants can be used to monitor air pollution and pollutants.

Planting green plants on both sides of the street can reduce noise and minimize its impact on people’s lives.

Planting green plants can also beautify the living environment, giving people a pleasing and refreshing feeling.
