Upon irradiation, luminescent alkynylrhenium(I) complexes [Re(–C≡C–R)(CO)3(N∩N)] (N∩N = bipy, phen) allow for TONs up to 400 (H/Re) in photocatalytic proton reduction in the presence of a sacrificial electron donor and cobalt-based water reduction catalyst. The acetylene group induces a redshift in the UV/Vis spectrum, ensuring a more efficient conversion of solar light into chemical energy.
