(b) Hill
(c) Blackman

These results suggested the presence of two interconnected pigment systems, Thereafter Lowis Duysens gave the concept of two photosystems PS I and PS II in light reactions of photosynthesis. A linear electron transport system with two light driven reactions (Z scheme) was proposed (Hill
