A qualitative dynamic picture of the chemical kinetics for photosynthesis

Francesca Magnabosco, Franco Cardin

Abstract


In this article the photosynthetic process is described from a qualitative dynamic point of view. After a brief and mesoscopic description of the chemical process, the related chemical reactions will be discussed by a mathematical point of view at a mesoscopic level, in agreement with the chemical kinetics theory. The behavior of the concentrations of all the chemical species involved in this process will be described and some new interesting relations among the kinetic constants will be found.
