Is it possible from a chlorophyl extract to use its photo-sensitive possibilities, and How? Answered

I·d like to found how to make photo-sensitizer out of chlorophyl extract, or from micro-weeds, or other any organic like plancton, to replace the very toxic technics used in every photo-reproduction work

I think the problem you are experiencing is that process is intended to convert light energy into chemical energy. Once you remove the chlorophyl from the cell you effectively break the catalysis chain. The process doesn't depend only on one chemical reaction. In short, it is an interesting idea, but I think you need to find a different organic mechanism. Perhaps what you want are photosensitive bacterium. such a process would be very slow though.

Not the right chemical-entity.
Toxic stuff can be good at doing things non-toxic-stuff can't.
Osmium tetroxide
Wood's Metal

(it goes on)

. I Googled "chlorophyll print" and found some interesting stuff, but I'm not sure if it's what you are looking for.
