Phototrophic prokaryotes inhabit a diverse array of environments on our planet and also contain a wide range of chlorophylls and bacteriochlorophylls, encompassing both chlorin and bacteriochorin structures. Mass spectrometry, particularly coupled with liquid chromatography and used in conjunction with soft ionization techniques, has been pivotal in the assignment of closely related chlorophyll and bacteriochlorophyll structures from these organisms. This review considers the ecological niches of the phototrophic prokaryotes, together with the mass spectrometric study of their chlorophyll and bacteriochlorophyll pigments.
