Efficient communication: The first porphyrin-photosensitizer-containing biomimetic model for the active site of Fe-only hydrogenases has been synthesized and structurally characterized (see picture). Its fluorescence spectrum reveals that an efficient electronic communication occurs between the porphyrin unit and the covalently linked diiron–azadithiolate moiety.
