Dietary chlorophyll metabolites catalyze the photoreduction of plasma ubiquinone.
Since this trend was also observed for Fo, the increase in salinity has possibly caused a lower flux of electrons between the photosystems, resulting in less activity or inactivity of the photosystem II reaction centers (Melo et al., 2017b) in plants spaced by 20 cm, i.e., the increase in plant density associated with increased salinity probably compromised the photoreduction of quinone A (QA) (Tatagiba et al., 2014).
Laser irradiation can give rise to different effects in plastic materials, such as engraving, ablation, foaming, carbonization, photoreduction, bleaching, and color formation [4], Most of the previous studies performed on polymers were conducted using excimer laser sources [5-14].

Silver particle deposition on Ti[O.sub.2] films was carried out by chemical photoreduction: first, Ti[O.sub.2] films were immersed in an aqueous silver nitrate solution (8.0 x [10.sup.-2] M) for 30 and 60 minutes; after the photoreduction process, Ti[O.sub.2] film colors changed from white to grayish brown.
