Does chemiosmosis pump protons or hydronium ions? - Donnieclark - 11-01-2017
In the process of chemiosmosis (or the electron transport chain), I always read that the process pumps protons across a membrane -- either the inner membrane of the mitochondria or the thylakoid membrane of chloroplasts. I wonder about this. I suspect that what is really pumped are hydronium ions, H3O+, but I cannot find this on the internet or in any of my books.
Can anyone answer this and maybe provide me with a source URL or book?
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
