A photo-hydrogen-evolving molecular device made up of a tris(2,2'-bipyridine)ruthenium(II) derivative and a dichloro(2,2'-bipyridine)platinum(II) derivative has been found to serve as the first effective model of a "molecular device" which evolves molecular hydrogen from water in the presence of a sacrificial electron donor (EDTA), under the visible-light illumination.
