chloroplasts

A structure within a green plant cell in which photosynthesis occurs. Chloroplasts are distinguished by their green color, which results from the presence of two pigments, chlorophyll a and chlorophyll b. A function of these pigments is to absorb light energy, which is converted to chemical energy during the process of photosynthesis.
