Chemiosmotic Coupling in Energy Transduction: A Logical Development of Biochemical Knowledge

  • Peter Mitchell

Abstract

At the invitation of the Editors, this paper gives a summary sketch of my position regarding some metabolic aspects of energy transduction and describes some present and anticipated perspectives from my point of view. To maintain as broad a horizon as possible, however, I have used this opportunity to describe how my views, and the rationale that I have developed to express them, have been derived from accepted or acceptable physicochemical theory and biochemical knowledge stemming from the creative and painstaking observations of my progenitors and colleagues.
