a biological process by which an organism uses the energy from the oxidation of inorganic substances such as ammonia, sulfur, and hydrogen to form organic compounds. Unlike photosynthesis, chemosynthesis does not require sunlight, so this process can occur at great depths in the ocean.

chemosynthesis, process in which carbohydrates are manufactured from carbon dioxide and water using chemical nutrients as the energy source, rather than the sunlight used for energy in photosynthesis. Most life on earth is fueled directly or indirectly by sunlight. There are, however, certain groups...

Method of making protoplasm (contents of a cell) using the energy from chemical reactions, in contrast to the use of light energy employed for the same purpose in photosynthesis. The process is used by certain bacteria, which can synthesize organic compounds from carbon dioxide and water using the e...
