What's funny is I understand every bit of that. I did my B.S. in biochemistry and molecular biology. I guess that explanation would make sense.Call me a chem nerd, but I believe the chemical formula for usable carbon in CO2 has a much lower bond strength so it's easier to separate for plants and add to existing compounds. It is also a more simple molecule which usually has a better ability to form larger compounds known in this case photosyntehtic intermediates.
On the other hand, excel has a few more "complex" compounds that aren't named, of course. My guess is that *some* plants such as some crypts don't the ability necessary to adjust to these changes. I could be completely wrong, but I've noticed the same. I have a feeling it's simply biology and chemistry at work.
Did you just take that off the SeaChem website??? :eek5: :biggrin:... It is also a more simple molecule which usually has a better ability to form larger compounds known in this case photosyntehtic intermediates.
Actually no. We had gone over this unit this past 2 weeks and that's what my organic chemistry text/professor uses. photosynthetic intermediates are the compounds that plants are able to use in their process to create the energy (sugars) that plants need. I'm still not convinced that Crypts and some other species can change it but I don't have a lab to test it unfortunately.Did you just take that off the SeaChem website??? :eek5: :biggrin:
