Low-valent lanthanide catalysts and reagents are well-established as versatile and tuneable mediators for a variety of synthetic transformations. Despite the contemporary interest in electricity as sustainable alternative to stoichiometric redox reagents, electrochemical (re)generation of such low-valent metal complexes in a synthetic setting is surprisingly limited. With focus on samarium and ytterbium, this Review presents a comprehensive overview of mediated electroreductive transformations to inspire further work in this field with great potential.
