Three metal-free molecular photosensitizers (S1-S3) featuring a starburst triarylamine donor moiety have been synthesized. They show attractive photocatalytic performance in visible light-driven H2production from water in their platinized TiO2composites. A remarkable H2turnover number (TON) of 10 200 (48 h) was achieved in an S1-anchored system.
