Organic compounds that are used as electron donor are called Organotrophs . An organotroph organism obtains hydrogen or electrons from organic substrates. This term is mostly used in microbiology to classify and describe organisms based on how they obtain electrons for their respiration processes. Some organotrophs such as animals and many bacteria, are also heterotrophs. Organotrophs can be either anaerobic or aerobic.
