1. Chemiosmotic theory (chemiosmotic hypothesis, chemiosmosis)
The theory that the synthesis of ATP (an energy source made and used by the organism) within mitochondria and chloroplast s occurs by way of a proton gradient which forms when electron s are passed through their inner membranes. When protons are then passed through the inner membrane in the opposite direction, energy is released and used to make ATP.
