Describe the reaction involved in photolysis? 

Dear student,
Please find below the answer:

Photolysis is a step involved in the photosynthesis process, which involves the breakdown of a water molecule into hydrogen and oxygen using light energy.

The absorbed energy by the chlorophyll is used in splitting the water molecules into their components (Hydrogen ions and oxygen) and releasing electrons. 

Hope this clears your doubt.
