Abstract: Importance of the "pigments of life" The studies of the tetrapyrrolic dyes, which have been called the "pigments of life" have attracted the attention of chemists and biologists since their discovery. The importance of the "pigments of life" as crucial cofactors for processes like photosynthesis, oxygen transport, oxidation processes, methane synthesis and for a series of unusual rearrangements illustrates well the central role played by this class of natural products.
