Abstract

Supramolecular complexes designed to produce hydrogen from water are provided. The supramolecular complexes absorb visible light and undergo charge transfer, leading to the collection of electrons at a reactive metal center, where the electrons reduce water to hydrogen. The complex remains intact during electron collection and hydrogen production.
