Does photosynthesis produce organic compounds?
Organic chemists make building blocks of COOH, carbon linked to two oxygen atoms and one hydrogen atom (H). As we discussed earlier, H is not really an atom, but a neutron. Then ? Because H is not stable in nature, organic chemistry is extremely complex. Organic chemists add outer attachments of OH, O, C, and CH to COOH, and add other molecules to create the most complex patterns imaginable. Why not look at the way God put things together, combining carbon dioxide with water through photosynthesis, keeping the carbon atom and releasing O2 to produce organic compounds? Plants do not release H or C. Organic chemistry then becomes amazingly simple.
The Cell, Respiration and Photosynthesis
Sugar Maples, like all plants, are photoautotrophs, meaning they produce their own food from sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water in a process called photosynthesis. By this process, plants can then produce oxygen and organic compounds (mostly sugars). Not only can the plant produce food necessary for it to survive, but it also produces vital oxygen necessary for humans and many other organisms to survive. For a Sugar Maple tree, as for most plants, the leaves are the sites of photosynthesis.
