In this review, we present recent advances in the transition metal catalyzed electro-organic transformations since 2000. The review mainly focuses on C-C and C-heteroatom bond-forming reactions along with miscellaneous reactions. Electro-organic synthesis attracts the attention of chemists due to no use of equivalent amount of chemical oxidants. Since electron is a mass free reagent, atom economy of electro-organic reactions is high and hence they are green reactions. We present articles in which transition metal catalysts are regenerated by electricity. Besides, reactions due to sacrificial anodes are also presented.
