    Just out of curiosity, have you checked TSR's wiki to see if there are any revision notes there that copver the topic? (I'm going to find it hard to explaion this for a A-level person- too used to the degree explanation now...)

    This link is for s-cool revision notes, which may help you: http://www.s-cool.co.uk/topic_quickl...s=&ebl=&elc=13

    (i'll just check our wiki for you too....)

    This page is probably the best in the wiki though not great: http://thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki/Rev...ic_Respiration

    The electron transport chain is also known as oxidative phosphorylation - 2 names to confuse you when searching the internet!

    Its not the real Wikipedia - its the Student Wiki of TSR!!!! (fair enough - still not 100% reliable, but since a lot of it is written by students, it is often in a format easier to understand)

    hha lets see if i remembers hmm

    Electrons are passed won the elctron transport chain each transfer releases ATP by chemiosmosis, the process of which involves the transfer of H+ ions moving into the intermembranal space from the inner membrane of the mitochondrion. The diffusion of h+ ions back into the inner membrance through chemiosmotic channels (which contain the enzyme atp synthase?) produces ATP. The name oxidative comes from the fact that electrons are oxidised and reduced at each stages as they are passed from one electron carrier to the next.

    ahh something along those lines anyway

    I was referring to the site called Wikipedia (that anyone without even registering can add/alter stuff. Which I have done to correct. :rolleyes:

    I thought you were on about the link i posted...

    However i would still use wikipedia in emergencies, poviding i don't need the information as part of an essay but just to get an overview or understanding of a topic. Especially when searching for information through other sources doesn't work - which is often the case with my degree.

    A-level work, though, should be available easily from other reliable sites, so wiki wouldn't be needed as much. I suggested wikipeidia before i knew if it was A-level or degree level the OP wanted.

    avoiding a filter isn't a minor thing on this site. Some url's are on the banned list for a reason - though i don't know why that one was.
