    The matrix of mitochondria is filled with water and enzymes. Those enzymes take organic molecules, such as pyruvate and acetyl CoA, and chemically digest them. Proteins embedded in the inner membrane and enzymes involved in the citric acid cycle ultimately release water (H2O) and carbon dioxide (CO2) molecules from the breakdown of oxygen (O2) and glucose (C6H12O6).
