The structure of chlorophyll is adapted for photosynthesis: 1)The chloroplast envelope keeps the reactants for photosynthesis close

to their reaction sites. 2)The thylakoids have a large surface area to allow as much light energy to be absorbed as possible.

3)Lots of ATP synthase molecule are present in the thylakoid membranes to produce ATP in the light-dependent reactions. 4)The stroma contains all the enzymes, sugars and organic acids for the light-dependent reactions.
