Let's follow this pyruvic acid molecule into a mitochondian to see where most of the energy is extracted As the molecule enters the mitochondrion one carbon is removed forming carbon dioxide as a by-product Electrons are stripped forming NADH Coenzyme-A attaches to the two carbon fragment forming acetyl-CoA
