The raw materials needed to carry out photosynthesis are water (absorbed through roots), CO2(diffused in from the air through stomata). In addition to these, chlorophyll (green pigment present in chloroplasts) and sunlight are also required to make food. Without these materials, photosynthesis cannot occur. The reaction involved is given below.
