Location of Chloroplast

  • Found only in cells where photosynthesis

    takes place, e.g. leaf cells in plants.


Importance of chloroplast

Importance of Chloroplast

  • Site of photosynthesis.

  • Produces organic compounds, i.e. carbon compounds.

  • Organic compounds has chemical energy in bonds from solar energy.


Structure of chloroplast

Structure of Chloroplast

  • Double membraneorganelle

  • Outer membrane smooth

  • Inner membraneforms stacks of connected

    sacs called thylakoids.

  • Thylakoid stack is called the granun

    (grana-plural)

  • Gel-like material around grana called stroma
