Bacteria relatives that can do photosynthesis don't have chloroplasts, but the chlorophyll/other needed chemicals are built into their cell membranes. These organsims are called Cyanobacteria. Cyanobacteria that occur in other organisms commonly lack a cell wall and appear to function essentially as chloroplasts. Cyanobacteria are the ancestors of chloroplasts.

No. Bacteria do not contain chloroplasts, but there are some bacteria relatives that can gp through photosynthesis. They don't have chloroplasts, but their chlorophyll and other needed chemicals are built into their cell membranes. These organsims are called Cyanobacteria (cyano = blue, dark blue) or bluegreen algae.
