With Copper We Can: This report is about novel devices for the photocatalytic reduction of protons based on a fully noble metal free system. New copper photosensitizers (CuPS) containing sulfonate anchor groups were prepared and sensitized on TiO2. The resulting CuPS-TiO2-composites exhibit a strong absorption in visible light with turnover numbers above 2300.
