    • Abstract


      The energy transfer from the main light harvesting complex of green bacteria into the reaction center has been examined by us. The chlorosomes, which are the highly organized antenna system of green bacteria, can perform an extremely efficient capture of light energy which is converted in the reaction center and results in essential electron transfer products. We have carried out some investigations of the energy transfer kinetics inChloroflexus aurantiacus in a two-wavelength fashion. The experiments seem to confirm previously obtained results.
