Mechanochemistry has become an important method for the synthesis and conversion of materials. Extending the mechanical impact to catalysis opens a broad area of new reaction pathways. In this contribution, three examples for the successful development and implementation of an in situ mechanochemical setup for synchrotron sources will be discussed.
