Exclamation Plant Thylakoid Quantification

Ok, so I kinda have a big problem here.
I am finishing my Master's Degree in Portugal.
I have to quantify the amount of thylakoids I have extracted from a few green plants.
I already know that Chlorophyll quantification is the best method but...
which of the several Chlorophyll quantification methods would you advise??
And more importantly:
- What is the correlation between chlorophyll quantity and thylakoid quantity??
I mean, imagine I get a concentration of 1mg of chlorophyll per liter of extract....what quantity of thylakoid membranes does that correspond to??

I really need help here.
Thank you anyone!
