The microbial fuel cell is an apparatus that produces electrical voltage and current through oxidation of molecules located in the microbes. A cell was constructed and experiments were conducted in order to establish whether the electrons come from the electron transport chain or some other molecule, like NADH, located in the cytoplasm. Azide, an electron transport chain inhibitor, was used to impair the electron transport chain, and the effects on voltage were measured.
