Proton-coupled electron transfer (PCET) is ubiquitous and electrochemistry has proved to be a useful tool to investigate the corresponding mechanisms. This review summarizes recent advances in theoretical modeling of electrochemical PCET and developments in the understanding of role of PCET in catalysis. We also discuss implication of PCET in charge storage processes.
