The photolysis of water is coupled to the reduction of plastaquinone (Q) in photosystem II (PSII) as summarized in this diagram, adapted from Berg et al.: The overall reaction (which balances) is: 2 H2O + 2 Q + 4 H+ = O2 + 2 QH2 + 4 H+ But the 4 H+ on both sides of the equation are not the same. The generation of the hydrogen ions in the thylakoid lumen ...

Starchy/ high glucose products will already be broken down ...
