Yes, chemiosmosis occurs in photosynthesis and respiration. During photosynthesis, chemiosmosis occurs in the chloroplasts, whereas during respiration, chemiosmosis occurs in the mitochondria. Due to chemiosmosis, there is a development of proton gradient across the semipermeable cell membrane, which couples with the synthesis of ATP molecules.
