Comments BNID 104413 gives value of +430mV. Consideration of the dentrification systems reveals that the topological organisation of the electron transport system has to be elucidated in order to understand energy conservation. The standard reduction potential is defined relative to a standard hydrogen electrode (SHE) reference electrode, which is arbitrarily given a potential of 0.00 volts.
