  • SUMMARY The maximum yield of oxygen production in Chlorella was found, in new, systematic experiments, not to exceed o.12, under a great variety of conditions. Measurements were made on autospores and other synchronous cultures, at different CO~ concentrations, at very low light intensities, and in the presence of 'catalytic' amounts of blue light. The action spectra (quantum yield as a function of wavelength) of photosynthesis, and of chlorophyll a fluorescence in vivo, were measured on the… CONTINUE READING
