The role of chlorophyll is very important in photosynthesis. Chlorophyll that is present in the chloroplast of the plants is the green colour pigment that is necessary in order for plants to convert carbon dioxide to water using sunlight, into oxygen and glucose.

The experiment to show that chlorophyll is necessary for photosynthesis is as follows :-

A chlorophyll producing leaf along with the plant is taken and a chlorophyll bleached leaf along with the plant is taken.

Both these plants are destarched before the experiment and kept in the atmosphere containing water, carbon dioxide, and sunlight. After 24 hours the starch content of the leaf may be checked with an iodine solution to prove that the chlorophyll deprived plant did not produce any starch.

The main thing is to take variegated leaves of croton or money plant. and the rest is same as for other experiments like sunlight, co2 etc.

Chlorophyll is necessary for green plant because chlorophyll absorb sunlight & with out sunlight photosynthesis does not occur we have CO2 H2O sunlight but not chlorophyll if we have chlorophyll then we will also autotrophs then no one depend on other & no one would greed
