The photoreduction of water to hydrogen has been carried out using two charge-neutral iridium complexes. The photophysical properties, electrochemical behaviours and emission quenching properties of these newly designed species have been investigated. In concert with the catalyst [Co(bpy)3]2+, members of this new class of complexes enable the photocatalytic generation of hydrogen from mixed aqueous solutions via an oxidative quenching pathway (see figure).
