Chemolithotrophy is a process of oxidation of inorganic molecule for the production of energy in the form of ATP. ATP is synthesized by the process oxidative phosphorylation. Chemolithotropic energy yield is low. Because of their high positive reduction potential. Reduced sulphur, nitrogen, iron species and hydrogen are the most common substrates this process.
