    Heres my definition:
    · Chemoautotrophs: Organism like bacteria that cangenerate their own food and produce their energy by using chemical energy (particularlyexorgonic reactions) and oxidation of inorganic molecules (like C02 and water)to produce large organic molecules such as glucose which contains chemical potential energy whichthey can then respire and to get ATP.Is Is it correct?

    It's correct. There's a bit of waffle in there but the main thing is that they obtain energy from inorganic (or organic) molecules through oxidation, which you've said
