Glossary of "Plant Biology (1st ed.)" by Graham et al. (2003)
- A type of chemical reaction that requires an input of energy to proceed. In endergonic reactions, the potential energy of the reactants is less than that of the products.
Glossary of "Life (9th ed.)" by Sadava et al. (2011)
- A chemical reaction in which the products have higher free energy than the reactants, thereby requiring free energy input to occur. (Contrast with exergonic.)
