The problematic consequences of using silver carbene precursors for the synthesis of NHC‐complexes is elucidated with the example of dinuclear Ru–Rh/Ir photocatalysts. The presence of silver in the products is proven and an alternative silver‐free synthetic approach successfully implemented. A significant difference in performance in photocatalytic hydrogen evolution reactions of catalysts generated...
