He also believed that the oxygen released came from the carbon dioxide.
Relation to photosynthesis: Senebier identified the importance of carbon dioxide in the photosynthetic equation as well as reasserting the importance of sunlight to the production of oxygen.

Van Neil reasoned that the H2A was broken down by light, and the hydrogen was combined with the CO2 to produce the sugar in a light independent reaction.
Relation to photosynthesis: Van Neil found that the oxygen released by the plant was broken down from the water.

Evgeny E. Ostroumov received his Ph.D. in Physics from University of Düsseldorf and Max-Planck-Institute for Bioinorganic Chemistry, where he worked with Prof. Alfred Holzwarth exploring the electronic properties of isolated chromophores and photoprotection mechanisms in high plants. He is currently an Associate Specialist at Princeton University, and his research interests include the development and application of nonlinear multidimensional ultrafast spectroscopy to study dynamics in natural and artificial photoactive systems with the aim of elucidating mechanisms of energy transfer and photoprotection and applications in diagnostics.

Rienk van Grondelle studied physics at VU University Amsterdam. He obtained his Ph.D. under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Lou Duysens. In 1982, he returned to VU University, and in 1987, he was appointed full professor. At VU University, he has built a large research group studying the early events in photosynthesis. R.v.G. has made major contributions to elucidating the fundamental physical mechanisms that underlie light harvesting and charge separation. He has developed theoretical tools for understanding complex spectroscopic data. Using multidimensional electronic spectroscopy, he recently showed that ultrafast charge separation is driven by specific molecular vibrations that allow electronic coherences to stay alive. He proposed a molecular model for photoprotection and demonstrated that the major plant light-harvesting complex operates as a nanoswitch, controlled by its biological environment. These results, of utmost importance for understanding photosynthesis, have inspired technological solutions for artificial and/or redesigned photosynthesis, as a route toward sustainable energy production.
