It also discusses other possible applications, such antifouling agents, controlling air pollution by degrading contaminants in the environment, self-cleaning of glasses and tiles in the presence of light or artificial light, green composites, wastewater treatment, hydrogen generation, and inactivation of microorganisms, as well as medical applications, photosplitting of water, photoreduction of carbon dioxide, and mimicking photosynthesis.
It should be observed that an increased Fm signalizes an increased quinone photoreduction efficiency, which in turn indicates an optimal PSII performance in the thylakoid membrane, thus directly reflecting an optimized electron flow between the photosystems (Silva et al.

5 ml) absorbance was measured by a Spectrum SP 2000uv spectrophotometer at 560 nm, and 1 unit of SOD activity (UA) was defined as the amount of enzyme required causing a 50% reduction in the NBT photoreduction rate (BEAucHAMP; FRIDOVICH, 1987).
