We report the use of a simple complex assembled from Ni(II) salt and 2-mecaptoethanol in one step in water as the efficient catalyst in a molecular hydrogen system which can be sensitized by a low-cost xanthene dye, Erythrosin B. An excellent quantum efficiency of 24.5% is attained at 460 nm. This simple system is expected to contribute toward the development of economical and environmentally benign solar hydrogen production systems.
