Abstract

Electron transfer from photoexcited CdS nanorods to [FeFe]-hydrogenase is a critical step in photochemical H2 production by CdS-hydrogenase complexes. By accounting for the distributions in the numbers of electron traps and enzymes adsorbed, we determine rate constants and quantum efficiencies for electron transfer from transient absorption measurements.
