An account of our most recent studies on the application of high pressure kinetic techniques in mechanistic studies of inorganic reactions is presented. The investigated reactions include substitution, addition, insertion, elimination, electron-transfer, photo-induced substitution, and irradiation-induced processes. In addition some data for typical bioinorganic systems are reported and future perspectives are described. The account clearly demonstrates that high pressure kinetics adds a further dimension to mechanistic studies of chemical reactions in solution.
