Herein we report an earth-abundant photocatalytic system for CO2 reduction to CO based on an iron catalyst combined with a CuI photosensitizer. Under visible light irradiation CO is produced as the main product (TONCO = 565, TOFmaxCO = 114 h-1) with a high selectivity over H2 production (SelCO2 = 84%).
