To develop the water photolysis into hydrogen and oxygen gases, photoinduced hydrogen production with the system consisting of photosynthesis dye molecule, Mg chlorophyll-α (MgChl-α) from Spinach as a visible light photosensitizer, NADH, methylviologen (MV2+) and platinum nano-particle in trimethyl alkyl bromide (CH3(CH2)nN(CH3)3+. Br-; n=8, 12 and 14) micellar media was investigated. Consequently, the effective MV2+ photoreduction and hydrogen production systems were accomplished using MgChl-α in CH3(CH2)14N(CH3)3+ . Br- micellar media.
