Algae are eukaryotic microorganisms which contain chlorophyll and are capable of photosynthesis. In various studies, Raman spectra have been used to identify a particular genus in a group of different types of algae. Each biomolecule has its own signature Raman spectrum. This characteristic signal can be used to identify and characterize the biomolecules in algae. Raman spectrum can be used to identify the components, determine the molecular structure and various properties of biomolecules in algae. With this view, this work presents a comprehensive review of current practices and advancements in Raman spectroscopy of Algae as well as in Raman spectroscopy of component biomolecules of different genus of Algae. © 2012 Parab NDT, et al.
