Oxidative phosphorylation is the addition of an inorganic phosphate molecule onto a molecule of ADP (by in which it forms ATP) in aerobic conditions, or, in the presence of oxygen. This occurs during respiration, where electrons being passed down the Electron Transport Chain will meet up with its respective hydrogen protons and oxygen in the enzyme ATP-synthase, forming water.
