Photosynthesis occurs in the chloroplasts (which contains the pigment chlorophyll) of the cells of green plants, and in one-celled autotrophs.

More specifically, the chloroplasts contain stacks of disk-shaped thylakoids, within which the light-dependent reactions occur.

The chemical equation is

carbon dioxide + water-> sunlight = oxygen + glucose

6CO2 + 6H2O + light → C6H12O6+ 6O2
