hydronium

 [hi-dro´ne-um]
the hydrated proton H3O+; it is the form in which the proton (hydrogen ion, H+) exists in aqueous solution, a combination of H+ and H2O.

hy·dro·ni·um ion

the hydrated proton, H3O+, a form in which hydrogen ion exists in aqueous solutions; also, H3O+·H2O, H3O+·2H2O, etc.

In contrast, the cross section of hydrogen ion exposed to photon flux we computed is four times the Thomson cross section for the scattering of free electrons.
Titratable acidity is always lower than total acidity, because not all the hydrogen ions that might be expected from the acids get recovered on the way to the standard pH endpoint of 8.
The rapidly rising hydrogen ion concentration and falling blood pH cause the fatigue and cramping we know as the Wall.
During the process, cations are replaced with hydrogen ions using cation-exchange resins; anions are replaced with hydroxyls using anion-exchange resins.
When compressed air passes through rusty pipe, it is contaminated with hydrogen ions and rust particles.
The Ion Torrent platform activity is based on a pyrosequencing chemistry, whereby individual bases are introduced one at a time and incorporated by DNA polymerase detecting released hydrogen ions.
In scientific terms, what pH means is the ability of molecules to attract hydrogen ions.
The hydrogen fuel flows between the plate and the anode, where it diffuses with the catalyst --usually platinum--into positive hydrogen ions and negative hydrogen electrons.
The energy produced by the electrochemical gradient is conserved and is sufficient to pump hydrogen ions from the inner mitochondrial matrix into the intermembrane space.
While hydrogen ions adsorbed quite strongly, the adsorption of the other ions was influenced by the pH of the aqueous solution.
Breaking down the paper with the enzyme into glucose sugar, the battery then combines the sugar with oxygen as well as other enzymes, converting it to hydrogen ions, water, gluconolactone acid, and electrons - producing electricity.
