Abstract
    Chlorophyll c estimations using the method of Parsons has given conflicting results in the hands of different authors. The present note shows that this difference was due to the concentrations used. The method as it stands is only applicable for use at very low chlorophyll c concentrations. Means of improving the method so that it could be used at higher chlorophyl c concentrations are suggested. Pheophytin c shows a reduced extinction coefficient in the assay system used (at the wavelength of maximum absorption) at higher concentrations.
