Three gang up on hydrogen: Bioinspired diiron complexes, xanthene dyes, and triethylamine make up three-component systems that display high turnover numbers for the photoinduced hydrogen production. The quantum yield is determined for this catalytic system. A plausible mechanism for the formation of the FeIFe0 species is proposed, which involves the reduction of the diiron catalyst by the neutral alkyl radical photogenerated from triethylamine.
