Photocatalytic production of hydrogen from water can directly convert solar energy into chemical energy storage, which has significant advantages and great promise. As an emerging photosensitizer, the efficiency of quantum dots (QDs) based artificial photosynthetic system have made breakthroughs. In this review, we will give a summary of the development of QDs based photocatalytic hydrogen evolution in these years. First, we highlight different types of hydrogen evolution catalyst combined with QDs; then we focus on the surface modification and heterostructure formation of QDs to improve the photocatalytic efficiency, respectively. In the end, we will propose some Cd‐free QDs and future development of photocatalytic hydrogen evolution.
