... compounds such as lactate and pyruvate (among many others) as electron donors, while others are lithotrophic, using hydrogen gas (H2) as an electron donor ... Desulfotignum phosphitoxidans) can use phosphite (HPO− 3) as an electron donor whereas others (e.g ... into two different compounds, in this case an electron donor and an electron acceptor) using elemental sulfur (S0), sulfite (SO2− 3), and thiosulfate (S2O2− 3) to produce both hydrogen sulfide ...

An additional criterion of respiratory microorganisms are the electron acceptors used for aerobic or anaerobic respiration ... for energy, which are mostly oxidised at the expense of oxygen or alternative electron acceptors (aerobic/anaerobic respiration) ...
