When an aqueous solution (W) containing flavin mononucleotide, pyruvic acid and O2 was put into contact with a nitrobenzene solution (NB) containing Na+, K+, valinomycin and a ferrocene derivative, CO2 was evolved in W and Na+ was transferred from NB to W, though K+ remained in NB. The above-mentioned respiration mimetic reaction process, accompanied by the selective ion transfer, was elucidated by referring to the ion and electron transfer voltammograms at the W/NB interface and by taking into account the energetics of the coupling between the ion and electron transfers.
