A low-cost photocatalytic system composed of earth-abundant elements has been synthesized, with the nickel–thiourea–triethylamine catalyst in situ formed on the C3N4 photocatalyst, which exhibits a comparable H2 production with a C3N4–Pt photocatalytic system and a long term photocatalytic activity.
