Abstract: Self-assembled strontium aluminum oxide (Sr3Al2O6)/copper phthalocyanine (CuPc) nanocomposites were successfully synthesized via an in-situ preparation technique. Prior to nanocomposites preparation, nonscale Sr3Al2O6 was synthesized by a facial solution combustion method using glucose as a reductant (fuel). The lattice structure of Sr3Al2O6 was identified in its XRD patterns. Electrochemical hydrogen storage property of the samples (host, sensitizer, nanocomposites) was recorded to be around 3100, 2500 and 4000 mAh/g after 15 cycles, respectively.
 
Keywords: Nanostructures; Sr3Al2O6; copper phthalocyanine; hydrogen storage.
