This species substitutes for a proton on an electron rich carbon in the benzene ring.
Most beta decays involve the emission of electrons from the nucleus as a neutron decays into an electron and a proton.
It was soon discovered that the proton, the neutron, and the electron are not alone.
The electron and muon neutrinos are easier to produce and detect than the tau neutrino.
The ionization energy is the energy needed to remove an electron from a gaseous atom.
The antiparticle of the electron is the positron; there are also antiquarks and antineutrinos.
It was the antiparticle to the electron , later called the positron.
Chemical reactions inside the cell strip electrons from the hydrogen atoms to produce a voltage that can power a circuit.
At the time, it was believed that electrons colliding with atoms always lost energy.
At that stage, the electrons and ions combined into neutral atoms that no longer scattered the radiation.
