Bimetallic colloidal particles, comprising variable mol fractions of platinum and gold, function as effective catalysts for the photochemical production of hydrogen under sacrificial conditions. With increasing mol fraction of gold there is a significant decrease in the rate of hydrogenation of the reactants such that higher yields of hydrogen are attainable.
