e·lec·tron

 (ĭ-lĕk′trŏn′)
n. Abbr. e
A stable elementary particle in the lepton class having a negative electric charge of 1 elementary unit (about 1.602 × 10-19 coulombs) and a mass of about 9.11 × 10-28 grams. Electrons are found in shells orbiting the nuclei of atoms and can also move freely through space as cathode rays in a cathode-ray tube or as beta particles emitted by radioactive nuclei, or flow in a current through a conducting material impelled by an electric potential difference.

n
(Atomic Physics) a stable elementary particle present in all atoms, orbiting the nucleus in numbers equal to the atomic number of the element in the neutral atom; a lepton with a negative charge of 1.602 176 462 × 10–19 coulomb, a rest mass of 9.109 381 88 × 10–31 kilogram, a radius of 2.817 940 285 × 10–15 metre, and a spin of

e•lec•tron

(ɪˈlɛk trɒn)

n.
1. an elementary particle that is a fundamental constituent of matter, having a negative charge of 1.602 x 10−19 coulombs, and existing independently or as the component outside the nucleus of an atom.
2. a unit of charge equal to the charge on one electron.

e·lec·tron

(ĭ-lĕk′trŏn′)
A stable subatomic particle with a negative electric charge. Electrons spin about an atom's nucleus in orbits called shells. Electrons behave both as particles and as waves, and their motion generates electric and magnetic fields. Though the electron is the lightest subatomic particle, its charge is as great as that of a proton. See more at atom.

electron

1. One of the three basic subatomic particles. It is very light and orbits round the nucleus of an atom. It has a negative charge.
2. A subatomic particle carrying a negative charge.

"The microbes in these regions have to use other elements that act as an electron acceptor to extract energy from food."
These reactive species are associated to the use of oxygen as final electron acceptor. Therefore, the design of bioelectrodes operating in an oxygen-free environment was suggested.
On the other hand, the team observed that transformation from nitrate/nitrite to N2 (i.e., denitrification process) usually consumed the electrons and this according to them could be regarded as an electron acceptor. Therefore, Junfeng and others concluded that coupling denitrification process with oxidation of Fe(II) and Mn(II) might develop a new type of autotrophic denitrification which could aid in simultaneous removal of nitrate, nitrite, ferrous and manganese.
The results show that the introduction of electron acceptor groups in the donor structure induces an extension of the photo-response in the visible spectral region, an increase of the maximum external quantum efficiency and an increase of the open circuit voltage under white light illumination.
With the oxygen produced by Nod, NC10 bacteria have the ability to aerobically oxidize methane in anaerobic conditions with nitrite as the electron acceptor [3].
Diaphorase activity of FNR with DCPIP as an electron acceptor (Scheme 1) was measured as reported by Onda [21] with modification in the reaction mixture of 50 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.5), 1 mM Mg[Cl.sub.2], 0.2 mM DCPIP, and 5 nM FNR.
Most metal-free organic sensitizers with high efficiency contain dye molecules with linearly shaped structures comprising a strong D-[pi]-A dipole with an electron donor (D), a [pi]-bridge, and an electron acceptor (A), which owns photoinduced intramolecular charge transfer natures [16, 17].
O2 acts as the terminal electron acceptor in the mitochondrial electron transport chain.
In a recent report, we demonstrated that a BTT fragment, which is usually serving as a donor unit for the synthesis of conjugated copolymers, might perform the function of the electron acceptor moiety owing to the carbonyl group attached [23].
ZnO is used as electron acceptor; its electron transfer mobility is thousand times greater than that of the TiO2.
The values of MATS obtained with the two other solvents, chloroform and ethyl acetate, were regarded as a measure of electron donor (basic) and electron acceptor (acidic) characteristics of bacteria, respectively [14].
