Electron Transport Phosphorylation (Chemiosmosis)

Goal: To break down NADH and FADH2, pumping H+ into the outer compartment of the mitochondria
Where: The mitochondria
In this reaction, the ETS creates a gradient which is used to produce ATP, quite like in the chloroplast
Electron Transport Phosphorylation typically produces 32 ATP's
ATP is generated as H+ moves down its concentration gradient through a special enzyme called ATP synthase

 ATP synthase
