Abstract: In this work, combinations of electrochemical and catalytic reactions were investigated from a mechanistic point of view on four examples. The first two examples deal with the electrocatalytic reduction of carbon dioxide by a manganese- and an iron-based complex. In the third example, the electrochemical variant of the Newman-Kwart rearrangement is investigated as an electrochemically catalyzed reaction. In the fourth example, the steps required to convert an aryl iodide as a mediator from an ex-cell to a catalytic in-cell process are highlighted.
