Light-driven water reduction: The synthesis and characterisation of new iridium(III) photosensitisers is described. Active water-reduction systems were established with various water-reduction catalysts (WRCs). The best system contained [Ir(6-iPr-bpy)(ppy)2]PF6 (bpy: 2,2′-bipyridine, ppy: 2-phenylpyridine) and [HNEt3][HFe3(CO)11] together with a P ligand (see figure).
