Appreciating Oxygen
Weiss, Hilton M.
Journal of Chemical Education, v85 n9 p1218-1219 Sep 2008
Photosynthetic flora and microfauna utilize light from the sun to convert carbon dioxide and water into carbohydrates and oxygen. While these carbohydrates and their derivative hydrocarbons are generally considered to be fuels, it is the thermodynamically energetic oxygen molecule that traps, stores, and provides almost all of the energy that powers life on earth. (Contains 1 table, 1 scheme, and 1 note.)
