 Title    Investigations on a Galvanic Cell Driven by Photosynthetic Electron Transport  
 Abstract    A light-driven galvanic cell was constructed making use of the photosynthetic activity of isolated chloroplasts. Artificial mediators managed the transfer of electrons from the endogenous electron carriers to the platinum electrodes in each of the joined half-cells. In one the mediators were reduc­ ed by electrons originating from water. In the other the mediators were oxidized by photosystem I in the presence of an autoxidizable electron acceptor. The redox potential in the single half-cells has been studied as a function of the lipophilicity of the mediators and their concentration. Further­ more different autoxidizable acceptors and different treatments of the chloroplasts were investigated. The combined half-cells were separated by an ultrafiltration membrane. Upon illumination the system gave rise to an open circuit potential of up to 220 mV. This battery was charged with rates as high as photosynthetic electron transport rates. The results are discussed with respect to the arrangement of the cell and the properties of the components for high effectiveness and maximal potential differences.
