In this work, thallium lead iodide (TlPbI3) perovskite nanostructures have been synthesized successfully via a facile and inexpensive sonochemical method. The impact of diverse parameters like Tl+: Pb2+ molar ratio, variety of capping agents, time and power of sonication were analyzed on pureness, morphology, and size of specimens. The as-prepared specimens were identified by X-ray diffraction (XRD), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), and X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) analysis. We used TlPbI3 perovskite nanostructures for electrochemical hydrogen storage, for the first time. The results showed that the hydrogen storage discharge capacity increased by repeating the cycles. We can nominate TlPbI3 perovskite nanostructures as a great agent for hydrogen storage.
